Motion Computing C5 Tablet PC Video Review InkShow

C5_beauty When Motion Computing announced the innovative C5 Tablet PC several months ago, people saw several new things not previously implemented in a Tablet PC: an integrated barcode reader, RFID scanner, a spill-proof / disinfectant-resistant resin casing, and a handle. The C5 was built from the bottom-up to be a health care focused device, and with those features, plus a 2.0-megapixel camera, it clearly shines.

The great thing about the C5 is that it has tremendous possibilities outside of the health-care field: field force workers, construction, hospitality, retail sales, warehousing, service, etc. I would really like to see future Motion products integrate the camera and the handle. In the few days I got to review the C5, I grew to really appreciate that handle.
