If these specs are true, Motion has again set the bar in a number areas:
- SXGA screen – would be the first slate on the market with SXGA
- Core 2 Duo – would be the first slate on the market with Core 2 Duo
- Integrated WWAN ( antenna is flush with casing – very nice! ). First slate, I believe, to offer integrated WWAN.
In addition, according to these FCC specs, they are offering a dual mode touch / active digtizer feature, what Motion is apparently calling WriteTouch. If these specs hold true when announcment time comes, Motion clearly listened to customer feedback when designing the LE1700. I’d expect this slate tablet pc to be quite popular. No official word on an announcement date. Stay tuned….
