Simms secures new Motion tablet

11 Jan 2011

Tablet PC maker Motion unveiled its first small form factor, tablet PC at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week and the device has already been secured for release in New Zealand by Simms International.

“Motion’s new CL900 will enable users to take advantage of connected applications, while also supporting uninterrupted productivity in remote or disconnected areas,” said David Altounian, Motion CEO.  “We’ve combined our trademark rugged design and robust solution set with the connectivity and portability of a tablet that is designed and built for business.”

Through an exclusive deal with Simms International, the tablet will be available here in early Q2.

Vaughan Nankivell, General Manager – Corporate and Enterprise at Simms International, added, “With the power and performance of the upcoming ‘Oak Trail’ Intel Atom processor, along with the mobility and durability of the CL900, Motion is delivering an ideal productivity tool for workers on the move which is perfect for the market here in New Zealand.”

The tablet is expected to cost around the NZ$1,400 mark and there will be two models available.
