Motion Computing has added a new tablet to its line of enterprise-focused Windows slate devices, offering Windows 7 now with the option to upgrade to Windows 8 in the future.
The Motion CL910 follows on from last year's Motion CL900 model, adding an updated Intel Atom processor and supporting clip-on expansion modules that add capabilities such as magnetic stripe reading and barcode scanning for vertical applications.
Like its predecessor, the CL910 has a 10.1in 1366 x 768 touch-screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and can support digital stylus input as well as fingertip control.
The CL910 has been given a performance boost with a newer 1.6GHz Atom N2600 dual-core processor, but is still limited to just 2GB of memory and up to 128GB of solid state drive (SSD) storage.
Motion has long specialised in enterprise-grade slate-mode devices, and so the new model carries a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip and is built to MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 standards for ruggedness and durability.
The CL910 has a claimed battery life of seven hours and can be configured with an optional 3G broadband module featuring GPS in addition to 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
It also supports devices such as the CL-Series SlateMate with magnetic stripe reader and barcode scanner, an expansion option for data acquisition and transaction processing.
"Motion's mission has always been to provide mobile workforces with the most comprehensive product line available, including rugged, purpose-built tablet PCs and productivity-enhancing accessories," said Motion Computing senior vice president Nigel Owens.
While the CL910 ships with Microsoft Windows 7 Professional as standard, all buyers will be eligible for a Windows 8 upgrade upon the release of Microsoft's new platform, Motion said.
Pricing for the new Motion CL910 starts at £827. More information is available on Motion's website.
