Talk about miniaturization. Motion Computing has released its latest slate tablet PC that packs a punch that is heavy enough to unseat full-size laptops. The new LS800 tablet has an 8.4” display, measures less than an inch thick and is smaller than an A4–sized paper. Don’t let its diminutive looks fool you.

Running on Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, the LS800 sports a 1.2GHz Intel Pentium M processor with 256MB of memory and a 20GB hard drive – enough to power most applications used by road warriors. Internal Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support makes this unit extremely appealing, and for security buffs there is a built-in biometric fingerprint reader for authentication. Targeting the same market as Sony’s Vaio U series, the LS800 comes at a competitive price tag of $1,899.00. Its design is extremely suitable for those in the medical and insurance line, as its small size makes it convenient enough to lug around while providing the necessary performance when there is demand for it.

With tablet PC shipments expected to double by 2008, the LS800 is a step in the right direction. (specs below)
