Using touch
The CL900 makes use of the latest duo-touch digitizer technology that can track finger, pen
and multi-touch input simultaneously. Generally, you use your finger for navigation, such as
paging through websites, scrolling and zooming. You can use a pen for more intricate
actions, such as marking up a document, using a spreadsheet or manipulating graphics.
NOTE: The digitizer is software that detects the current position of your finger or pen and converts
your input to digital input. Digital ink refers to the technology that digitally represents
handwriting when you write with a pen on a virtual writing pad.
Like other touchscreen displays, you use your finger (or pen) as you would use a mouse. For
example, tapping twice is the same as double-clicking a mouse. Tap and holding is the
same as right-clicking a mouse to open context-sensitive menus.
Here are some common ways to perform tasks on a touchscreen:
• Tap—Select something
• Tap and hold (equivalent to a right-click on a mouse)—Open a context-sensitive menu
• Double-tap—Perform a double-click action
• Tap and drag—Drag and drop
• Pinch fingers together—Zoom in
• Spread fingers apart—Zoom out
• Flick—Scroll through a list or move quickly
• Press and hold the pen’s function button (equivalent to a right-click on a mouse)—
Open a context-sensitive menu
NOTE: If the tablet does not respond when you tap with your finger, try using more area of your
fingertip. Unlike other types of touch screens, it does not respond to other input. For
example, you can’t tap it with another object such as a credit card.
16 Chapter 2 Using your CL900

Troubleshooting 47
Bluetooth wireless tips
Motion Computing and its Bluetooth partners have worked to ensure a positive experience
with this technology and to ensure Bluetooth interoperability. In doing so, we have found
the following issues:
• Interference—If you are running Bluetooth and 802.11 Wi-Fi at the same time,
interference can affect the Bluetooth performance. This is most noticeable if:
– You try to transfer large amounts of data, such as file transfers, or printing large
documents.
– Several Bluetooth devices are operating in an office simultaneously.
• Speech Recognition—Bluetooth audio has not been fully developed for speech
recognition. Therefore, for speech recognition, we recommend that you not use a
Bluetooth wireless headset. A better solution is to use Motion Speak Anywhere, which
can record clear audio, dictate notes and use voice commands without a microphone
headset.
• Disconnection—Some Bluetooth devices will disconnect when they go into powersaving mode. Most devices will automatically reconnect when they become active again.
• Incompatible drivers—If you attempt to install other wireless headset or other audio
drivers (such as Bluetooth or USB) over the tablet PC audio drivers, a malfunction of the
tablet PC audio system may occur because the drivers may not be compatible.
• Interoperability—If you are having problems with interoperability of Bluetooth
devices, contact the manufacturer of your Bluetooth device and check its compatibility
with the Bluetooth software installed on your tablet PC.
• Security—Bluetooth devices use a passkey to create a secure connection between the
tablet PC and the Bluetooth device. Although the passkey exchange helps to secure your
data, Bluetooth wireless technology should not be considered completely secure.
Mobile broadband with GPS
I cannot connect to a mobile broadband network
• A mobile broadband (WWAN) network requires you to have a data plan from a cellular
network carrier, such as AT&T, Millicom, Orange, SK Telecom, T-Mobile, Verizon or Vivo,
among others.
• If your network carrier is on a UMTS network, your network carrier must provide you with
a SIM card to enable mobile broadband service. You insert the SIM card in the slot on the
left side of the tablet. The SIM card contains your account information.
• Mobile Broadband with GPS must be enabled from the Motion Dashboard. For
information, see “Enable wireless” on page 8.

Frequently asked questions
How can I make the battery charge last longer?
• For maximum conservation, you can use the Power saver power plan. See “Selecting a
power plan” on page 33.
• Use the Dynamic display setting. This automatically controls the display to conserve
power. See “Adjusting the display brightness” on page 26.
• Set the display to the dimmest level you are comfortable with. See “Adjusting the display
brightness” on page 26.
• Disconnect any Ethernet connections that are not being used. Disable the wireless
adapter and Bluetooth adapter if you are not using them. Disconnect unnecessary USB
devices. To disable the adapter, from Windows Start menu, select Motion Computing >
Motion Dashboard, tap Wireless and clear the check box next to the Enable Bluetooth
wireless.
• Stop unnecessary background applications and processes.
How do I know if the tablet is charging when I plug it in to a power adapter?
• The battery gauge button on the left side of the tablet is amber when the tablet is
charging.
How do I check the battery charge when I’m running on the battery?
• When you press the battery gauge button on the left side of the tablet, battery gauge
lights appear on the front. If no lights appear, you should attach the tablet to a power
source immediately. Five lights indicate a full charge.

Frequently asked questions
How do I clean the display screen?
• To clean the display screen, wipe it with a soft cloth (like the one supplied). Do not spray
cleaners, spray/pour any liquid, or wipe any abrasive cleaner on the screen or any surface
of the tablet PC. Do not use tissues or paper towels to clean the screen. They contain
wood fibers and may scratch the surface.
• Motion Computing maintains a list of tested cleaning solutions and chemical
disinfectants on its website.
Will scratches affect the performance of the display or digitizer?
• Our testing has not found appreciable loss of performance on a scratched display.
How sensitive is the screen to various elements?
• As with any computer or electronic device, you should protect the tablet PC from liquids,
dirt and sand, other contaminants and extreme heat.
Will any monitor, USB device, keyboard or mouse work with the tablet PC?
• If the device has a driver for Windows, it will work with the tablet PC. For best result, an
external monitor should be digital—and capable of connecting with theCL900 through
the micro HDMI port. For a list of products that have been tested for Windows, look for
the Windows Marketplace Tested Products page on the Microsoft website.
How do I adjust the tablet PC for left-handed use?
• From the Motion Dashboard, tap Pen and Tablet, then Tablet PC Settings, then the
Other tab. You can select left- or right-handed which changes the location of the menus.
How can I stop the display screen from rotating automatically?
• From the navigation area, tap the Motion icon
, tap Options and clear Automatic
Display Rotation.
How do I calibrate my finger and pen for touch input?
• You do not need to calibrate the CL900. If the touchscreen does not respond as expected
or if it responds to unintentional input, you can finetune it. See “Using the touch tuning
option” on page 17.
What do I need to use the Tablet PC in another country?
• You will need a travel plug adapter, which you can find in airports and travel stores. You
do not need to buy a voltage converter; the Motion AC adapter will automatically adjust
to different voltages.
