The J3500 Series is specifically designed to take the bumps and bruises of mobile activities in such industries as construction, field service and healthcare. The tablet PCs offer enhanced system storage, with a standard 160G-byte hard disk drive, and 64G-byte or 128G-byte solid state drive (SSD) options.

J3500 Rugged Tablet PCThe Intel Core i7 or Core i5 vPro technology used for the series provides significant improvement in performance over previous processors. The platforms also provide enhanced remote management capabilities enabling IT technicians to repair and secure the PC from any location, even while powered-down or in sleep mode.

Motion Computing was reportedly the first to use this platform in tablet PCs, with the introduction last month of the F5v Mobile Field Tool and C5v Mobile Clinical Assistant (MCA) PCs.

Other standard features of the J3500 Series include: Up to 4G-bytes of RAM, a built-in 3M pixel camera, integrated Gobi2000 mobile broadband with GPS, and a variety of anti-theft technology ranging from manageable hard drive encryption to built-in Computrace tracking and recovery protection.

The J3500s LCD screen is also optimized for digitizer and touch input, allowing full use of touch-enabled software applications or legacy programs with smaller targets that require the accuracy of pen input. The unit also features palm rejection technology that distinguishes between intentional and false touch, while stylus recognition enables users to easily switch between input modes.

The top feature of the J3500 computers, however, is their tough and tumble nature. The touch-sensitive screens are based on Corning Gorilla glass that is reportedly four time stronger than conventional screens and has an anti-smear coating for improved visibility. The system is tested to withstand harsh mobile work environment and meet MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 ratings to ensure protection against bumps, drops, rain or other conditions that can damage commercial-grade computing solutions. Additionally, the dual hot-swappable battery solution extends the computing day and enables easy replacement of charged batteries without interruption.

Typical users of ruggedized tablet PCs include the Lake Oswego Fire Department in Oregon, which has deployed Motion Computings F5 tablet PCs to conduct in-the-field fire and safety inspections that are paperless and wireless. The system was selected because it can endure harsh conditions and is flexible enough to support a variety of applications, notes Deputy Fire Marshal Gert Zoutendijk.
