And did anyone say anything about the pixel density on a 7" screen at this res? (I haven't read the whole thread.) Seems to me it would be an irresistible little thing.
I'm thinking about going into the lab coat biz . . . .
Yeah! Nice catch!
I think the same number of pixels and same aspect ratio would work best.
As to the lab coat biz... Tell me about it.
There's another way to resolve the iCI "iPad Carry Issue" for enterprise, especially doctors in hospitals.
It's rather simple. actually-- you resolve the "iPad Carry Issue" by not carrying an iPad around
Think of doctors in the hospital:
-- all of the patient records, schedules, treatments, RX are on the central computer accessible through WiFi.
-- each nurses' station has a supply of generic
iPads lying around - fully loaded with the hospital's apps, fully charged, generic data loaded... but no specific doctor or patient data.
-- the iPads are as utilitarian and as ubiquitous as a thermometer.
-- the doctor on his rounds, checks in at the nurses' station, grabs an iPad and ID's himself.
-- as he is walking to his first patient's room the generic iPad he grabbed is WiFi fleshed out with his schedule and his patients' data
-- everything is at his fingertips during his rounds.
-- when he returns it to the nurses' station it is re-genericizedNo Big deal!
The same concept could work in a lot of enterprises-- ubiquitous, generic iPads, instantly customizable, instantly cleared.The ultimate Mobile Thin Client for enterprise!
