TELUS has added the Motion CL900 Tablet PC, a highly mobile, connected tablet that runs the Windows 7 Professional operating system to its list of mobile offerings. The new business-oriented tablet brings the excitement of tablets to mobile workers and enables them to work faster and smarter wherever their job may take them.
TELUS is the first Canadian carrier to offer the new Motion CL900 Tablet PC on its network. Designed for business, the 10.1″ CL900 is a rugged, ultra-light tablet PC that is competitively priced and powered by Windows 7 Professional to provide superior performance, security, manageability and business integration.
“The majority of Canadian businesses use a Windows platform to manage their day-to-day activities. The Motion CL900 Tablet PC solves some of the key issues our business customers are facing when working in the field or moving around an office by allowing them to run the Windows applications they depend on through a mobile, large-screen tablet that is both robust and lightweight,” said Jim Senko, TELUS vice-president of Small and Medium Business. “The competitive starting price of this tablet PC, when compared to similar products, makes it an incredible value proposition for businesses with a mobile workforce. We are thrilled to be working with Motion to be the first Canadian carrier to launch the CL900 on Canada’s fastest coast-to-coast 4G wireless network (Based on TELUS’ tests of data throughput speeds in large Canadian urban centres).”
“Today’s launch by TELUS and Motion is another example of how we are leading the way for mobile workers looking for connected, point-of-service solutions,” said Scott Ball, Canada Business Development Executive, Motion. “The Motion CL900 Tablet PC can easily integrate and run business applications, be deployed across multiple locations and is designed for people who work outside of a typical office environment, such as on a construction job site, in a home healthcare environment or on the road. TELUS has also made the CL900 affordable for small, medium and enterprise business customers to experience the power of a rugged tablet PC.”
Weighing less than 1kg (2.1 pounds), the Motion CL900 Tablet PC has been designed from the inside out to meet the challenging conditions of mobile workers. Built around an internal frame, the Motion CL900 Tablet PC is equipped with an ultra-durable Corning Gorilla Glass screen and has been tested to withstand drops up to four feet, making it the ideal tablet for use in the field.
