Motion Computing, a manufacturer of tablet personal computers, has selected SanDisk’s 32Gb solid state drive (SSD) for its new F5 mobile slate tablet PC.
As a significant add-on for rugged PC users in industries such as field service, manufacturing, government and construction, SanDisk’s SSD 5000 1.8 UATA 32Gb provides F5 users enhanced durability, higher performance and greater power efficiency.
The announcement was made at CeBit.
“We have selected SanDisk SSD in our new F5 because we believe it gives our users the most robust and reliable solid state solution available in the market today for mobile Tablet PCs,” says Michael Johnson, executive vice-president of engineering at Motion Computing. “SanDisk was among the first to bring this innovative SSD technology to the market and it’s that experience, and the quality of their product, that allow us to offer the durability in the F5 that our customers demand.”
Richard Heye, vice-president of SanDisk’s SSD division, adds: “The F5 paired with a SanDisk solid state drive can withstand the toughest working environments. We’re pleased to support Motion Computing’s commitment to the technology needs of these highly mobile users.”
Motion Computing's new, semi-rugged F5 device is a balance between commercial-grade devices and fully-rugged PCs, which have costly features typically required in only a small percentage of field applications.
