We just received a Scribbler demo unit for testing purposes. It's heavy, compared to Motion, Acer, and Fujitsu models we've reviewed, due in part to the long life battery. It is not "rugged" but appears more sturdy than some of the tier 1 products available. The function keys are recessed, and you use the stylus/pen to activate them. Screen seems a little dull if not looking at it straight on, I believe the Acer was brighter. We'll be having our QA person test our app with it over the next few days, and will be getting it into the hands of some builders on site. The litmus test for them will be whether they can see the screen well enough, in their truck, and under different lighting conditions.

We just placed an order for 4 of these units - SC300 Scribbler Tablet PC's. Two will be for demonstration, and the others are for customers. The screen is almost impossible to see in direct sunlight, but if you can find shade outside, you can manage. Once you're in your vehicle, or in a building, no problem with viewing the screen. We have the brightness turned up to maximum on the Control Panel. Battery life - very impressive! Check out their website www.electrovaya.com

If seeing the screen outside becomes an issue, Motion and Fujitsu both sell outdoor viewable screens for an additional fee. I know someone else released them too, I thought it was Electrovaya but maybe it's NEC.

I researched tablets for a year before my purchase to make sure I bought the best. Result: bad service, battery is no better than any other, really SLOW boot times, when the battery goes the unit will die suddenly and the repairs are a dissapointment (to be kind). If these are for customers, your customers may project these problems upon you as an indication of your ability to make a decision. This happened to me as Isuggested them for my company. Luckily, I own my company.
