Getting pictures into your slate Tablet PC without a tether

This product suggestion comes from one of our customers that uses tablets to document building conditions while rappelling from ropes. Because their work requires a higher level of photo detail than can be found in a Tablet PC, they need to use a 12MP digital camera. When you are hanging 15 stories about the street, tethering your camera or transferring an SD card isn't really a practical solution.

What they did is find a product called the Eye-Fi ( which allows them to wirelessly transfer photos from their digital camera directly to their tablet PC so they can mark them up.

If you try this solution, let us know how it works for you.

Enable Motion F5 and F5v camera to take pictures while in portrait mode

Recently, a customer asked how they could take pictures while in portrait mode. By default, the Motion C5, F5, C5v and F5v don't automatically rotate the camera when the display is rotated. Interestingly, this is easy to do but comes disabled by default.

Here is what you do:

Go to Start-->All Programs-->Intel (folder)-->MCA Platform Drive (folder)-->MCA Configuration Editor

Then, on the left side menu, click on Camera Plug-in.

Now, on the right, look for Enable Portrait Mode and set this to True instead of False.

BAM! Done!

Many thanks to Nathan Kuykendall of Motion Computing for providing the answer.

Motion J3500 Tablet PC now available with Core i3 processor

Motion Computing recently announced that their popular J3500 Tablet PC is now available with a Core i3 processor. Many businesses that want to use tablets don't need the power and associated expense of a high end unit. For EMR, filling out forms and email/web use, a Core i3 processor is enough power to do all their work.

Starting at just $1,799, you can purchase a semi-rugged, full function Tablet PC. The base unit include the Indoor Dual Touch display, 2Gb RAM, a 30Gb SSD, wireless, the Mobile Keyboard and a one year field-ready warranty. This is a very sweet deal for a doctor's office or service business that wants to deploy tablets while managing the cost of the initial investment.

To see all the different Core i3 models available, visit our Tablet Store.

Motion Computing adds Core i3 processor choice to C5v and F5v tablets

Bookmark and Share

Motion Computing quietly added an option to downgrade the Motion C5v or F5v to a Core i3 processor. Combined with a tiny 30Gb SSD, this lowers the starting price of a C5v to just $1,899 and the F5v to $2,148. Besides the color, the difference between the C5v and the F5v is a one year warranty versus a three year warranty which accounts for the difference in the starting price.


If you have a "heavy" application that requires a lot of resources, this is not a good choice. Especially because Motion Computing is only offering very limited configurations, so you can't get the barcode reader, camera or larger hard drives.

However, if you are running a web based or "cloud" application that doesn't need much processor, memory or hard drive, these units provide all the benefits of a rugged, disinfectable, lightweight Tablet PC.

Delivery on configurations with the Core i3 processor are on a 6 week lead time right now. If you want to learn more, call us at 215-441-5580 x1.
