With that in mind, we all know that Nintendo intended for people to get off the couch and actually interact with their games on a whole "new" level.

Motion J3400 rugged test videos: drops, water & dust

Any rubber-clad gadget can claim to be rugged, but it takes some preparation to put your shiny new product through MIL-STD-810F ruggedization testing.  It's tough when it's a cellphone; making an entire Tablet PC stand up to the same drops, dust, water and more is quite the challenge.  Still, that's what Motion did with their new J3400 rugged slate, and they've released some of the videos of the testing it endured.

Notebooks, MacBooks, netbooks, now tablets: Microsoft's new Windows 7 pre-beta has had another chance to do its thing, this time on Motion Computing's diminutive LS800 Tablet PC.  GottaBeMobile dug out the 8.4-inch touchscreen slate and, paying no heed to its "CPU challenged" 1.2GHz Pentium M processor, did a fresh Windows 7 install.  Considering this computer would choke with Vista, to say Windows 7 was a success is an understatement.
