Yesterday we wrote about an All-in-One PC-sized Android tablet based on a TI CPU, but now we are bringing you something that can qualify as the opposite, to a certain degree.
The Frontier Kouziro SmartDisplay FT103
is a large (21.5-inch) Android device reliant on the Texas Instruments OMAP 4428.
We say that Motion Computing's CL910 is an opposite because it has a 10.1-inch LCD, but an Intel CPU inside. The processor in question is called Atom N600, has
two cores and operates at 1.6 GHz.
The screen has a perk of its own too, in the form of a Gorilla Glass panel, which protects it from harm (it takes a significant force to damage it in any way). Speaking of which, the native resolution is a comfortable 1,366 x 768 pixels (HD).
"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 Mary Anne Gunn, director of corporate marketing at Motion.
"With the latest enhancements to the CL910 Tablet PC, we are continuing to deliver on that promise with an array of solutions that are built to fit seamlessly into our target vertical environments."
Gorilla Glass and the solid state drive of 128 GB are not the only advantages that the enterprise-centric CL910 has over competing products (the so-called “enhancements”).
For one, Motion Computing implemented CL-Series SlateMate with magnetic Stripe Reader (MSR) and Barcode Scanner (BCS). This will make it useful in transaction processing and data acquisition.
Secondly, the device is compliant with MIL-STD-810G and IP-52 standards (high durability, resistance to water and solid object intrusion, etc.).
What's more, the company tossed in Bluetooth 4.0, wireless SIM, Wi-Fi, GPS and high-res digitizer pen input support on the two-finger touchscreen.
Sales should already be underway
, for $1,259 / 1,026 Euro. Windows 7 is loaded on the tablet, but Windows 8 will be possible to install once Microsoft launches it this October (2012).
