Back in May (oh so long ago), Motion Computing began taking orders for the CL900, its newest rugged tablet offering. Now it’s time for the customers to get what they asked for, as shipments of the CL900 start going out today (June 2).
The CL900 is one of several recently announced Intel Atom based tablets. Featuring a 1.5GHz Oak Trail Z670 processor, it somewhat represents Intel’s continued attempt to push into the mobile space. However Intel has already thoroughly demonstrated that it owns the crown when it comes to business tablets, and that it’s more crucial for the chipmaker to gain ground in consumer tablets, which the CL900 is not.
But back to the tablet at hand – the CL900 runs Windows 7 Professional, and in terms of hardware features a 10.1-inch Gorilla Glass touchscreen with 1366 x 768 resolution, 2GB of RAM, a 30 or 62GB solid state drive, one USB port, one SD card slot, a rear-facing 3.0 MP camera and a front-facing 1.3 MP camera.
First shipments of the CL900 will arrive in the United States, as well as internationally in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, France, and Germany. The CL900 starts at a relatively inexpensive (as far as rugged tablets go) $900 price point. TabletPCReview will be putting the CL900 to the test when we get our review unit sometime in the next few weeks.
