WHAT TO DO
FIRST
Congratulations on selecting the Motion Tablet PC! After you turn on your
Tablet PC and start Windows XP, you may want to take the following steps:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Calibrate the pen.
Practice using the pen by playing Inkball.
Take the tutorials.
Check out the “Using Your Motion Tablet PC” page.
See what is on the Windows Help and Support Center page.
Take the Microsoft Windows XP tour.
Calibrate the Pen
Your pen will function better and you will be more successful using it if you
calibrate it immediately and recalibrate it occasionally. For directions, see
the section “Calibrating the Pen” in Chapter 4 of this User Guide.
Practice Using the Pen
The Motion digitizer pen is a unique input device for the Tablet PC system,
but it may take a little practice to use. Here are some hints:
•
•
•
•
•
When you write with the pen, you can rest your hand or arm anywhere
on the Tablet PC display without disturbing any open programs or damaging the display surface.
Watch the cursor instead of the pen tip when you write. The cursor is a
guide for your pen movements. If it does not align with the pen tip, you
should recalibrate the pen.
Practice writing and learn how firmly and where to tap on the Tablet PC
display. You need these skills for activating programs, menus, or other
Tablet PC functions.
The pen can be held like any other writing tool. Learn how to hold it and
when and how to press the pen function button, which activates rightclick functions.
Change pen tips regularly, especially if you drop the pen onto a rough
surface that could damage the tip or embed debris in it. Damaged pen
tips can scratch the display.
For other hints about using the pen, see the section “Using the Pen” in
Chapter 4 of this User Guide.
Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 4
Chapter 1 Getting Started with Your Motion Tablet PC
Play Inkball

components, LEDs, and accessories.
TABLET PC
DISPLAYS
Standard Display
The 12.1-inch Motion Tablet PC standard display and writing surface
combine three key components:
•
•
•
A highly-readable, liquid-crystal display
An acrylic protective layer that offers a
firm writing surface and minimizes glare
Under the display, a digitizer panel that
allows hand-written entry with a specially-designed Motion digitizer pen and
on-screen keyboard data entry
Standard Display Features
•
•
The Motion Tablet PC display, unlike
touchscreens or PDAs, responds to the digitizer pen, but not to a plastic
stylus or to finger touches or taps.
Touching the Tablet PC display surface does not affect any open programs or data input, so you can safely rest your hand on the display and
not disturb your work.
NOTE: For more information about caring for the display, see Chapter 4 of this
User Guide.

Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 15
Chapter 2 Motion Tablet PC Hardware
AMBIENT LIGHT
SENSOR (ALS)
A built-in light sensor located on the Tablet PC front panel measures the
ambient light in the environment. The system then automatically balances
the brightness of the Tablet PC display in relation to the surroundings. You
can set the brightness level you want from the Motion Dashboard. Using this
setting, the system automatically adjusts the display’s brightness as the light
levels change to bring you the desired display brightness indoors and out.
For optimal battery life benefits and viewability from ALS, we recommend
that you set the ALS slider to the mid-point or slightly above or below midpoint. If you set ALS higher than this, you lose some of the battery-savings
benefits while gaining minimal improvement in viewability.
Microphones
The two Tablet PC microphones can be set in the Motion Dashboard to a
narrow focus (for single-person dictation), wide focus (for a small meeting
with several people), or for a conference room setting (for a large meeting,
which disables all “Array Processing” or “beam-focusing” software, as
described below). These options provide flexibility in a variety of settings.
Technically, the microphones are designed with the following features that
help optimize the sound capabilities of your Tablet PC for voice recognition
and Voice over IP (VoIP):
•
•
•
PC Card Slot
Array Processing or “beam focusing” software — Removes all sound
outside the angle of acceptance
Noise Suppression — Removes background and ambient noise
Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) — Removes echo caused by microphone pick up of the system’s speaker output and prevents feedback
The PC Card slot, located on the power switch edge of the Tablet PC, holds
one Type-II PC Card for networking, memory expansion, or accessory
connection.
1. To install a PC Card, insert it label-side up.
2. To remove a PC Card, push the button next to the slot until it
pops out.
3. Push it again to eject the PC Card.
NOTE: Your Tablet PC ships with a plastic blank card in the PC Card slot. When
the slot is not in use, we recommend that you leave the plastic blank
in place.
Mini PCI Card

Calibrating the Pen to Increase Its Accuracy
Be sure to calibrate your pen the first time you start your Tablet PC, then at
other times if the cursor does not seem to line up with the pen tip.
Calibration ensures the accuracy of the pen and adjusts the Tablet PC display
for each person who uses it. The Tablet PC stores pen settings on a per-user
basis.
To open the calibration program:
1. Open the Motion Dashboard and tap Calibrate. Or doubletap the Tablet and Pen Settings icon in the System Tray,
located in the lower right-hand corner of the display window. This
opens the Tablet and Pen Settings window.
NOTE: This icon may be hidden in the
System Tray. Tap the System Tray leftarrow to open all hidden icons.
2. Tap Calibrate while holding the pen
in a normal writing manner.
3. Carefully tap the pen point precisely in the center of each of the
four calibration crosshairs as they
appear.
4. Rotate the Tablet PC display and repeat this for each orientation
(0o, 90o, 180o, or 270o).
Hints for Writing with the Pen
The first time you pick up the pen, you will notice it is lightweight (it has no
internal battery), has a plastic tip, and contains an elongated button that is
called the “function button.”
•
You can hold the pen like any other writing tool, except you may want to
place your fingers on either side of the pen function button so you do not
inadvertently press it as you write. Pressing the function button while
tapping the pen on the display is like right-clicking with a mouse and
will launch pop-up menus or may otherwise interfere with your writing
or drawing.
Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 32

Practice pressing the pen function button with both your index finger and
thumb to see which you prefer.
Relax your grip. Only a light touch is needed to write with the pen.
With a little practice, you will learn how to tap on the Tablet PC display
to activate buttons and menus.
The more precise your handwritten input, the more accurate the Tablet
PC will be in converting it to text. You can use printed or cursive handwriting, but a mixture of upper and lowercase letters works best.
When you hold the pen over the Tablet PC display, a pointer (small dot)
appears under the pen tip on the display and moves with the pen on
the display.
To select something on the display, line up this pointer before you touch
(tap) the pen to the display surface. The digitizer under the Tablet PC display reads the position of the pointer, not where you touch the pen to the
display.
CAUTION: Do not write on the Tablet PC display with ink pens or other
sharp objects that could damage it. Do not use permanent markers
that may damage the display.
A comparison of the pen and mouse operations is made below:

MAKING BEST
USE OF THE
TABLET PC
INPUT PANEL
The Tablet PC Input Panel Keyboard and Writing Pad let you:
• Enter information in other input fields, such as passwords
• Hand write or type entries in Journal documents
• Write or type e-mail messages
1. Open the Tablet PC Input Panel by tapping the icon, shown
here.
2. With another application active, such as a password entry field, a
Journal document, or Outlook, write or type the desired entry on the
Input Panel window.
3. By default, after a short delay, your handwriting or typing will be
automatically sent to the active program.
HINTS FOR
WORKING WITH
THE INPUT
PANEL
Here are some other hints about the Tablet PC Input Panel:
• Disappearing text — If you do not open an active application or the
Input Panel Preview window, your writing or typing will disappear
from the display in a few seconds. Open an application (such as
Microsoft Word) or the Preview window to accept your text.
• Sending drawings — While probably not the best application for
drawings, you can send them from the Input Panel to some
applications (for example, Wordpad or Microsoft Word). However,
they do not transfer to the Text Preview window. If you draw from the
Input Panel with the Text Preview window open, Windows XP tries to
interpret the drawing as text and the results are unpredictable.
• Entering passwords — For security and accuracy, we recommend that
you use the keyboard on the Input Panel instead of writing this
confidential information where it is clearly visible.
Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 35
Chapter 4 Using Your Motion Tablet PC
Input Panel Text Preview Window
The Tablet PC Input Panel Writing Pad has an optional Text Preview
window (opened from the Tools menu) that lets you see a text transcription
of what you have written before you send it to an active application. You can
send your text to this preview window at any time by tapping Send.
Otherwise, there is a built-in delay to send the text. (You can change the
delay period from the Tools>Options menu from 1/4 second to 10 seconds.)

(or any Microsoft Office application).
NOTE: Without a second application open to accept the ink input, the input will
disappear from the Tablet PC Input Panel.
4. Tap the down arrow beside Send.
5. Enable Send as Ink. (If the application you have
open does not accept ink input, this option will
be grayed out, as shown here.)
6. Create the text or simple drawing you want to
send as ink.

AMBIENT LIGHT
SENSOR (ALS)
The Motion Tablet PC Ambient Light Sensor (ALS), located on the front
panel, detects light in the environment. When enabled, it adjusts the display
brightness to changing light conditions. ALS maintains display viewability
and can increase battery life as the system optimizes the display backlight in
different lighting conditions, thus reducing power consumption whenever
lighting conditions allow.
NOTE: For optimal battery life benefits and viewability, we recommend that you
set the brightness slider to the mid-point or slightly above or below mid-point. If
you set the slider higher than this, you lose some of the battery-saving benefits,
while gaining minimal improvement in viewability.

display is at the desired level.
The system will keep the
same brightness level at all times; that is, it will not adjust the display
brightness in changing ambient lighting. This may sacrifice viewability
NOTE: In low-light conditions, the “Fixed” brightness setting may keep the
display brighter than is needed for viewability. Keeping the brightness always at
the same level may also use more battery power than necessary.

BLUETOOTH
WIRELESS
RADIO
INSTALLATION
AND SET UP
Built into your Motion M1400 Tablet PC is a Bluetooth wireless radio, part
of an emerging technology of products designed to eliminate cables through
a low-powered, short-distance personal area network. Bluetooth was
designed to provide wireless operations between devices such as keyboards,
mice, and printers as well as Tablet PCs and cellular phones.
Motion Computing and its Bluetooth partners have worked to ensure a
positive experience with this technology, as well as to ensure Bluetooth
interoperability. In doing so, the following operating issues have been found:
•
•
•
When simultaneously operating Bluetooth wireless and 802.11 wireless,
interference between these wireless technologies impacts Bluetooth performance. This is most noticeable with the transfer of large amounts of
data, such as file transfers, printing large documents, or using a Bluetooth device for audio.
Bluetooth audio support for the M1400 Tablet PC is currently based on
Bluetooth technology that has not yet been fully developed for speech
recognition. Therefore, for speech recognition, we recommend that you
do not use a wireless Bluetooth headset.
Because Bluetooth is a relatively new technology, some cross-device
compatibility issues may occur. 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.
The next sections contain general information for setting up a Bluetooth
device. For information about a particular Bluetooth device, be sure to read
the manufacturer’s documentation, visit their website, or select Help.
Installing the Bluetooth Software
IMPORTANT: To operate your Bluetooth device, first install the Bluetooth
software, which is part of the Tablet PC software image. No separate installation
CD is required.
1. With your pen, tap Start>All Programs>Motion Resources>Bluetooth>Bluetooth Readme.
2. Follow the steps in the Readme to install and configure the Bluetooth
software. When the installation is complete,
a white Bluetooth icon appears the System
Tray.

for other troubleshooting tips. Perform the steps that put the device in
discoverable mode.
• Check to see if other Bluetooth devices are in range and can be discovered by
tapping My Bluetooth Places>Bluetooth Tasks>Search for devices in range. If
other devices are discovered, a problem may exist with the Bluetooth device
you’re trying to install.
If the Bluetooth card in the Tablet PC still fails to detect the Bluetooth device,
contact the device manufacturer or visit their website for assistance.
8. When the device is discovered (see
Step 7), highlight the device and tap Next.

Pairing a Device (Bluetooth Keyboard)
In addition to discovery, the installation of many Bluetooth devices requires
the pairing of the external device (such as a keyboard) with the Tablet PC.
Pairing lets you avoid entering access information each time you connect to
the device. Paired devices share a unique “link key,” which they exchange
each time they connect. Once paired, devices stay paired, even if they are out
of range or not working, until you unpair them (see “Unpairing Devices”).
The following steps describe how to pair a Bluetooth keyboard, but are
similar for other Bluetooth devices.
1. Repeat Steps 1-10 in the Set Up a Device section for this device
(Bluetooth keyboard).
2. Highlight the device in the Entire Bluetooth Neighborhood window.
(In this example, a BT keyboard.)
3. Right click on the device
and tap Pair Device from

MICROPHONE
DESIGN AND
FUNCTIONS
The Tablet PC contains two microphones with features that help optimize
the sound capturing capabilities of your Tablet PC for voice recognition and
Voice over IP (VoIP):
•
•
•
Array Processing or “beam forming” software—Removes all sound outside the angle of acceptance
Noise Supression—Removes background and ambient noise
Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC)—Removes echo caused by microphone pick up of the system’s speaker output and prevents feedback.
Focusing and Training the Microphones
The microphones can be focused to several angles—narrow, wide, fullroom—and can be trained to detect sound from in front of or to the side of
the Tablet PC, or in the entire room.

SECURITY
Passwords protect your Tablet PC from unauthorized access. Passwords can
create different levels of protection for your Tablet PC and its data:
•
•
Operating system password — Secures the files on your Tablet PC
from other users
BIOS passwords — Secures the software routines that test hardware at
startup, start the operating system, and support the transfer of data
among hardware devices; BIOS is the Basic Input/Output System
• System password — Locks access to the BIOS setup
• Boot password — Locks access to the system
• HDD (Hard Disk Drive) password — Secures your data so the Hard
Disk Drive cannot be accessed by removing it and connecting it to
another Tablet PC
Setting the Windows Operating System Password
You can set up a Windows operating system password through the Windows
Control Panel, User Accounts.
Setting the BIOS Passwords
CAUTION: We strongly recommend that you write down your password(s)
and keep it in a location that is appropriate to your work environment. If you
enter a wrong BIOS System password several times, you will be locked out
of the system. If you become locked out, you can restart the Tablet PC and retry the
password again. You can repeat restarting and retrying the password as many times
as you want. However, if you are unable to remember your password, you will not be
able to access your Tablet PC. If this happens, you call Motion Computing Technical
Support or your Motion reseller for assistance. Have your Tablet PC Serial number
available (located on the label on the back of the unit) for them to assist you.

CARING FOR
YOUR TABLET
PC AND ITS
ACCESSORIES
The Tablet PC display and chassis are designed to be very durable. This
section describes the proper care and maintenance that will keep them
working and in good condition for a long time. For general information
about care of the Tablet PC and its components and accessories, see the
Regulatory and Safety Guide packaged with your Tablet PC.
CAUTION: Be sure to follow the guidelines listed below when caring for
your Tablet PC and its components. Improper use may damage the
Tablet PC and/or its components and void the warranty.
General Care
• Protect the Tablet PC from exposure to extreme temperatures, shock,
liquids, strong magnetic fields, and turbulent conditions.
• Do not open or disassemble the Tablet PC other than to replace
memory modules or to replace the battery. Always follow the
instructions included with these accessories when performing these
procedures.
WARNING: To avoid the risk of personal injury or damage to the Tablet
PC, when replacing memory modules, turn off your Tablet PC, unplug
the AC power connection, and remove the battery. Ground yourself by
touching a grounded conductive surface, such as a device or
appliance with a grounded, three-pronged plug. Avoid touching the
pins and leads on the memory and the internal circuitry of the Tablet
PC. See the section “Adding Memory” in this chapter for more
information about replacing or adding memory modules.
• When storing the Tablet PC for an extended period of time, unplug AC
power and remove the battery after discharging it part way.
• Do not place heavy objects on top of the Tablet PC.
Caring for the Display Screen
• You can clean fingerprints and most marks from the display surface by
wiping it with the soft cloth (provided). If needed, you can spray this
cloth with a window-type cleaner. Never spray or pour liquids directly
onto the display surface itself. Never use an abrasive cleaner on the
display. If liquid is spilled on the display, wipe it up immediately.
• Avoid using tissues or paper towels to clean the display surface. These
contain wood fibers that can scratch the display.
• Use only the Motion digitizer pen on the display. Do not write on the
surface with an ink pen or pencil, any pointed or other object that
could damage the display surface.
• Do not place heavy objects on the display surface.
• Protect the display surface from unnecessary contact by using the
Hardtop Cover or a portfolio when transporting the Tablet PC.
• Avoid exposing the display to direct sunlight for long periods of time.
Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 64
Chapter 4 Using Your Motion Tablet PC
Caring for the Motion Digitizer Pen
• Always store the Motion digitizer pen in the Tablet PC pen bay or in
the portfolio when not in use.
• Store extra pens in your portfolio. Do not store the pen vertically on
the tip. Constant tip pressure can affect the pen-to-digitizer interaction.
• The pen contains sensitive electronics. Do not immerse it in liquids.
Replacing the Pen Tips
Normal use eventually wears down the pen tip, so the pen ships with extra
tips and a small “tip tool” for replacing them.
1. Grasp the old tip with the silver ring
of the tip replacement tool (1).
2. Pull the old tip out of the pen.
3. Insert a new tip (2).
4. Apply slight pressure to push it
into place.

2
CAUTION: Certain environments may contain particles or debris that
can adhere to the Tablet PC display or to the pen tip. To avoid
damaging the display, clean it frequently with the cleaning cloth,
provided with your unit. Also, change pen tips regularly, especially if
you drop the pen onto a rough surface that could damage the tip or
embed debris in it. Damaged pen tips can scratch the display.
Ordering New Pens
To order additional pens, visit the Motion Computing website at
www.motioncomputing.com/accessories.
TRAVELING
WITH YOUR
TABLET PC
Here are some tips for traveling with your Tablet PC:
• Remove all accessories and cables. Remember to pack those you will
need while traveling and do not forget to pack at least one Motion
digitizer pen.
• Attach the Hardtop Cover or slip the Tablet PC into a portfolio to
protect the display.
• Protect the pen by keeping it in the Tablet PC pen bay or portfolio case
during travel.
• Pack the Tablet PC securely in a briefcase or hand-carried luggage,
and keep it separate from toiletries, liquids, and food. Do not pack it in
checked luggage when you travel.
• Keep the Tablet PC stable during travel; secure it to prevent it from
sliding around in overhead bins and car trunks.
NOTE: For travel warnings, see the section “FAA Wireless Air Travel
Requirements” in this chapter.
Motion Computing M1400 Tablet PC User Guide 65
Chapter 4 Using Your Motion Tablet PC
Traveling by Air
• Prepare for airport security by charging the battery in the event
Security asks you to start the Tablet PC.
• Have it hand-inspected or sent through the X-ray scanner, but never
carry it through the metal detector.
• Either turn off or place the Tablet PC in hibernation for takeoff
and landing.
FAA Wireless Air Travel Requirement
WARNING: The FAA requires that wireless operations be suspended
before boarding the plane. The easiest way to disable internal wireless
operations is by unchecking (disabling) all wireless devices in the
Motion Dashboard. The wireless LED on the Tablet PC front panel,
shown here, is off when wireless communications
are disabled. To disable external wireless operations, remove any
installed wireless PC Cards.
WARNING: Do not transport the lithium ion batteries used in your
Tablet PC in checked baggage. You may take up to two spare
batteries in carry-on luggage in addition to the one in your Tablet PC.
Transporting batteries in checked baggage or transporting more than
two spare batteries is a violation of transportation regulations.
Other Travel Hints
• Before extended use in the field or long trips away from AC power,
adjust the Power properties to maximize battery conservation. Rightclick the Power/Battery icon in the System Tray, located in the lower
right-hand corner of the display window, to open the Power Options
Properties dialog box. Then adjust the options. For more information,
see the section “Changing the Default Power Scheme” in this chapter.
Or see the Performance and Maintenance section of the Help and
Support Center for details about power settings.
• For international travel, obtain and use the appropriate adapters for
your destination’s electrical outlets. A current converter is not
necessary.
• You may want to carry proof of ownership or a merchandise passport
when traveling internationally.
• Consult your insurance company and credit card company to learn
about emergency travel assistance in the event your Tablet PC
becomes lost or disabled.

FAQS
How long will the battery stay charged?
This can vary according how you’re using the Tablet PC, but a new, fully
charged standard Motion 6-cell battery can last 3-4 hours.
Can I make the battery charge last longer?
• Change to the Max Battery power scheme (right-click on the Power/
Battery icon in the System Tray—located in the lower-right corner of
the display window—and tap Adjust Power Properties; under Power
schemes, tap Max Battery). The Tablet PC comes with Motion
Computing Optimized as the default power scheme.
• Dim the display brightness by opening the Motion Dashboard and
moving the Display Brightness slider. (You can also double-tap on the
Tablet and Pen Settings icon in the System Tray and choose the
Display tab to get this brightness slider.)
• Disconnect LAN/modem connections and disable wireless
communications when not in use (uncheck the Wireless checkboxes in
the Motion Dashboard).
• Turn off optional and unnecessary background programs and turn off
or unplug accessory equipment from the USB and IEEE 1394 ports.
What does the Tablet PC need for use in another country?
Just an outlet adapter, which you can find in airports and travel stores.
The AC adapter will adjust automatically to different voltages when
plugged into the correct location-appropriate power adapter.
What’s the best way to clean the display screen?
To clean the display screen, wipe it with a soft cloth (like the one
supplied) onto which you have sprayed a window-type cleaner. Do not
spray cleaners, spray/pour any liquid, nor wipe any abrasive cleaner on
the screen nor 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.
Will scratches affect the display/digitizer’s performance?
Testing has not found appreciable loss of performance on a scratched
display.
How sensitive is the screen to sunlight and the elements?
As with any computer or electronic device, the Tablet PC should be
protected from liquids, dirt and sand, other contaminants, sunlight, and
extreme heat.
Will the Tablet PC work with any monitor or USB accessory keyboard, mouse,
disk drive, etc?
As long as the device’s driver is available either in the Windows XP
operating system or from the manufacturer and it carries the Windows
XP logo or certification, it should work with your Tablet PC. For more
information, see www.microsoft.com/help.

Appendix A Troubleshooting and Support
Why doesn’t the Tablet PC or FlexDock have parallel, serial, or
PS2 (mouse) ports?
Microsoft Tablet PC certification requires the system to be completely
Grab-and-Go—that is, to be able to dock with and undock from all
accessories without putting the system into suspend or shutting it down.
Connection through legacy ports (serial, parallel, PS2) often requires
suspending or restarting the system, which prevents you from moving
between desktop mode and mobile mode seamlessly in one docking/
undocking step. You can purchase a USB-to-serial or USB-to-parallel
adapter from Motion Computing or a Motion Computing reseller.
How do I adjust the Tablet for left-handed use?
Double-tap on the Tablet and Pen Settings icon in the System Tray,
located in the lower-right corner of the display window, which opens the
Settings window. You can change handedness as well as the location of
the menus. Then, recalibrate the Pen.
