New industrial tablet has crossover appeal

Motion Computing

Motion Computing was going unveil its new LE1700 Core 2 Duo slate tablet PC to the world this morning, but thanks to some errant FCC documents, the blogosphere got wind of ita few days early.

The company is known for tablets aimed at industrial and hospital users--but with a Core 2 Duo CPU, built-in mobile broadband, and a 12.1-inch 1,400x1,050 screen that can switch between stylus and fingertip input--there's plenty of mainstream crossover appeal in the LE1700.

GottaBeMobile found a load of early details on the system on the Web site, but here are some more official specs from the company:

  • An SXGA+ LCD screen, a first among slate tablet PCs.
  • Up to 4GB of 667-MHz memory with dual-channel memory support.
  • WriteTouch display option for automatic switching between digitizer and touch input with a simple double-tap to go from one mode to the other.
  • View Anywhere display option for high-quality display clarity and visibility at nearly all angles in nearly every lighting condition

    The LE1700 is available today and starts at $2,199. An optional docking stand and keyboard are also available for more traditional computing experience.
