Windows 7 tablet comes with Gorilla Glass and an $899 base price tag

Motion Computing’s rugged CL900 tablet was first spotted way back in January at the CES conference, but is just now seeing the light of day. The rugged Windows 7 tablet is marketed for higher-end consumers but also weighs less than 2.1lbs (.95kg).

The 10.1” tablet comes with a 1366x768 pixel resolution screen along with Intel’s new Oak Trail processor. The Atom Z670 processor is clocked at 1.5GHz and will supposedly be able to power the included Windows 7 Home Premium for up to eight hours. The base unit also comes with a 30GB SSD, 1GB of RAM, a pair of webcams (front and back) and a stylus for input. Optional upgrades include a 62GB SSD, another GB of RAM, Windows 7 Professional and an active digitizer to improve input accuracy. Internet seekers will also be able to tack on a Gobi mobile broadband module.

The aforementioned specs are decent for a Windows 7 tablet, but what sets the CL900 apart from its peers may be the durability features included within the slim frame. The tablet is less than 1.5cm thick but Motion Computing has outfitted it with Corning Gorilla Glass and has been tested in real-world conditions using MIL-STD-819G and IP52. The tablet also has certain accessories available such as a USB keyboard and a docking station.

The tablet is currently available only through authorized Motion resellers and starts for a price of $899.
