The LE1700 is described as an evolutionary step from the firm's current LE1600 model, continuing Motion Computing's focus on vertical markets such as healthcare, education and mobile field workers. Available to order from 2 April, the updated unit adds new wireless capabilities, a higher screen resolution and greater processing power.
It's the only slate-style Tablet PC with Core 2 Duo as far as I'm aware, so it's the most powerful in the market, said Andy Toal, business manager for Motion in the UK and Ireland.
An option on the LE1700 is Motion's WriteTouch display, which enables input using an active stylus or by touching the display. WriteTouch detects the proximity of the pen to work out which method it should use, according to Toal.
