Motion F5m tablet shipping again after sharing the stage with Xplore for the first time

Companies keen to deploy the Motion F5m tablet, who have been thwarted by lack of availability got some good news at last week’s Service Management Expo – new owners Xplore Technologies announced that the tablet has begun shipping again.

Stocks dwindled rapidly when Motion Computing’s screen supplier abruptly closed its factory in China at the end of last year. Production has now restarted with a new supplier and lead times are back to normal, Ian Davies, Country Manager, Northern Europe, told Field Service News.

The F5m specification includes an Intel i7 vPro processor and the option of ultra-fast 4G mobile broadband connectivity.

Last week’s event was the first time service companies had the chance to take a look at the new combined range from following Xplore’s acquisition of Motion Computing in April. Both companies are leading providers of Windows-based rugged tablets designed to enable mobile workers to securely capture and share critical data at the point-of-service, delivering real-time decision making capabilities necessary for improved productivity, operational efficiency, and faster / smarter service tablets.

“I’m pleased with how the integration is going,” said Davies. “Xplore Technologies can now offer a wider line-up of tablets addressing a broader range of customer needs.”

Look out for Field Service News’ review of the F5m next week.
