The "WOW" factor continues as once again Motion Computing gives us the perfect combination of simple elegance, innovative design and function in the M Series Hardtop Keyboard.
From the moment I saw the Motion M1200 at the Tablet PC launch last November there wasn't a doubt in my mind that Motion Computing was going to give the big boys a run for their money, and they have. They gave us the M1200 Tablet PC followed by the M1300 Tablet PC with the Centrino processor, and now they are offering one of the most impressive accessories I have seen to date. The M Series Hardtop Keyboard.
The hardtop Keyboard is convenience at It's best. you have a19mm key-pitch keyboard, right and left click mouse buttons, pointer, and an adjustable easel all contained in a sleek 1.25 pound package that snaps over the face of the Motion Tablet PC and doubles as a protective cover. It's The perfect combination form and function in one small package. You also have the additional convenience of snapping it onto the back of the Tablet while working and not using the keyboard.
When you're ready to use the keyboard you simply rise the built in easel, connect the attached USB 1.1 cable and you're ready to work in landscape mode. For those who prefer to work in portrait mode a extension cable is provided. When you disconnect the keyboard from the tablet you simply lift up on the sliding panel at the back of the keyboard and the easel folds back into the keyboard.
Convenience at it's best, the hardtop Keyboard is a take anywhere, use anywhere accessory that you can't imagine being without once you've used it. From the boardroom, airplane, the bleachers at a little league game, sitting on a pillow in bed or even under the dryer at the beauty salon, the Motion Hardtop Keyboard maintains its stability and performs flawlessly. While I'm fairly certain Motion didn't design the Hardtop Keyboard with the idea that it would be used under the hair dryer at the beauty salon, I can tell you from personal experience that it works just fine in that situation and stability isn't a problem.
