Fujitsu Siemens launches mobile clinical assistant
Fujitsu Siemens Computers has announced the launch of the Esprimo MA, a tablet PC designed for mobile working in the healthcare sector. It is based on the Intel Mobile Clinical Assistant platform and features the new Intel Atom low-power processor designed to give long battery life for mobile devices. It closely follows the launch of the Panasonic MCA earlier this month, which also features the Intel Atom. It will be available in production quantities in the second quarter of 2009.
The Esprimo MA weighs only 1.3kg and is fanless, which enables it to have a fully sealed housing that can be sterilised for use in healthcare environments. It has integrated high-speed 3G/UMTS (3G is optional), WLAN and Bluetooth wireless communications. (Source: BJHC&IM)
