Motion Computing adds HSDPA capability LE1700 tablet PCs

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

Chicago (IL) – Motion Computing today received approval from the FCC to integrate HSDPA-based wireless broadband capability in its latest tablet PC models.

The HSDPA feature is expected to be announced by the company soon and to be offered side-by-side to the existing EV-DO option.

The documents filed with the FCC also reveal that the company has replaced the existing Atheros Wi-Fi chipset with Intel’s 3945 ABG (802.11 a/b/g) version, while the notebooks apparently continue to use the first-generation Core 2 Duo L7400 (1.5 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache) processor.  

Pricing has not been announced, but should be comparable to EV-DO version of the LE1700, which is available for about $3300.
