First off I ignored this Philips medical tablet, thinking I was seeing stories about Motion’s C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant. But it turns out that the high-tech medic has a choice of touchscreens for their virtual practice. This one, excitingly, not only has a 10.4-inch display, digital camera, WiFi and Bluetooth, it can read barcodes and RFID tags and – according to Philips – has a “ground breaking” hand grip.
You wouldn’t think a handgrip could be all that groundbreaking, really, but it’s apparently comfortable even after a lengthy shift and suited to both the right and the left-handed.
Production should start in fourth-quarter 2007.
