Loving my LE1600
Its' been two weeks since I received my Motion LE1600 Tablet PC. Still loving it. My favorite yet. I wish my convertible keyboard would hurry up and ship.
Couple of issues:
1) Motion needs to work with Intel on fixing the wireless issues. Lots of reports or TabletPCBuzz.com regarding connectivity issues.
2) Fingerprint verification is a major pain. After talking with Trevor, he had the same issues on his M1400 until they released as update.
3) realistic battery life after 2 weeks is about 2.5 hours.
I'm on the verge of purchasing the LE1600 (my first Tablet)... but I'm concerned about the connectivity issues. I know you purchased a card... but the wireless network should just work. Do you know if others have it working correctly (out-of-the-box)? Does Motion know about this problem? Have you tried the fix you linked to on the TabletPcBuzz.com yet?
Also, did you purchase the extended battery?
Keep up the great LE1600 reporting. :-) Perhaps another positive post or two and I'll be swayed to purchase the LE1600.
is it with wireless on?
My M 200 has almost 4 hour of battery life when I turn off the wireless
I have not tried those fixes, but intend to over the weekend. when I Called Motion, I was the first to call for Tech Support.
Wendy: that is with wireless on. wireless off, I get over 3 hours.
I did purchase the ext. battery. Ships in July.
Good luck with your wireless fix this weekend. I look forward to your blog post on it as well as the extended battery when you receive it later this month.
