Your iPad does not impress me…

I’m working away at the Qantas Club in Melbourne last week, waiting for a flight to Launceston.

I’m on the communal bench, working on a video on my Fujitsu T900 with full HD AVCHD video.

I’m cutting an editing away, and I love using touch and pen for this job, so I’m in slate mode.

I get interrupted by an important phone call, and while I’m on the phone, this guy comes up and sits right in front

of me (kind of strange because there is plenty of space) and he pulls out his iPad and starts tapping away.

He stays there for all of five minutes under my nose, as if to say “Look at me!’ But by the time I’m off the phone, he’s gone!

I wanted to say to him, “yes, you have an ipad… I have one too, isn’t that nice? Mine’s at home, now excuse me, I have Important work to do!”

Congratulations to Motion Computing

Motion Computing F5v Motion Computing won the Microsoft OEM Partner of the Year awards this year. Whilst Motion are a big company in our terms, they are a minnow in the Microsoft OEM world, so it’s really great to see this award going their way.

I really like the way Motion pushes the boundaries with their products. Their display technology is the best of the best, Gorilla Glass is a must have for Tablet PCs and their battery technology is well in front of their competitors too.

We’re heading to Mackay in North Queensland this week with a bunch of Motion Computing J3500s and Motion Computing F5vs for the Queensland Mining and Engineering Expo. 2 years ago, Motion Computing Tablets were a marginal possibility for mining duties, but now thanks to the ruggedness of tablets like the F5v and J3500 – Motion Computing J3500which have seriously impressed companies like Rio Tinto, Newcrest and Northbridge Mining – the Motion Computing  brand can be found in many mining  situations.

So congratulations to Motion Computing on winning the Microsoft OEM Partner of the Year Award. Well deserved!

Motion Computing J3500 arrives

I got hold of the Motion Computing J3500 this week, both the touch and Gorilla Glass models. As I mentioned in my last post I’ve been using the Fujitsu Lifebook T900, but I find that I use it almost exclusively as a slate. So I’m in the process of switching my mobile operations to the J3500.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the T900. It is certainly my first choice of convertible Tablet PCs. Fujitsu have been extremely reliable for us (less than 1% failure rates so far which is remarkable), and the T900 will continue to be my mobile video editing machine due to it’s performance profile.

I’m switching to the Motion Computing J3500 because of it’s smaller profile, dual battery setup (to be fair I could do this with the T900 too) and the Gobi mobile broadband. We don’t have mobile broadband as an option on the T900 here in Australia unfortunately.

So it’s onto the Motion Computing J3500 with touch. Here is a video that we shot to give you a little preview of it.

After using the J3500 and T900 for a few months now I am extremely impressed with Windows 7 and touch. The only drawback that I have found is that I am constantly touching the Wacom Interactive Pen Display in my office with my finger. I have to remind myself…
