Screen breakage and scratching have always been a risk with Tablet PCs. Most Tablets are fairly resistant to scratching – particularly the rugged ones – due to the special glass that they use.
However, we have seen plenty of scratched up and broken screens over the last 7 years – especially after years of hard use.
Thanks to the innovators at Motion Computing and Corning that risk can now been significantly reduced. Motion have introduced Corning Gorilla Glass to the rugged F5 Tablet PC and C5 MCA. Gorilla Glass significantly improves scratch and breakage resistance for the F5 and C5 screens.
Motion recently updated the display on the F5 and C5 to include Hydis AFFS+ technology which puts C5 and F5 on par with the J3400 for outdoor readability. This is undoubtedly the best outdoor display technology on the market now (remember that outdoor viewing is not about brightness – nits).
The combination of Gorilla Glass and the Hydis AFFS+ outdoor display is a giant leap forward for the C5 and F5.
Motion Computing keep pushing the envelope in the Tablet PC game. These two innovations are huge for rugged tablet computing!
