Tablet PC products

Microsoft Corporation has launched the latest incarnation of the “pen computer” on November 7th, 2002. I applaud these efforts, because the use of a pen as a pointing device, is far more natural than using ANY other input device. Just think of how many years you have used a pen or pencil in your life, compared to using a mouse, trackball or other computer pointing device.
I have used a pen-enabled computer since 1994 and I am quite passionate about this product category. I can attest that for mobile professionals “on the move”, a pen-enabled computer (tablet) is FAR more productive than either a laptop or a PDA. Just try walking around while using a notebook or surfing most web sites using a PDA. The pen-enabled tablet computer combines the strengths of a notebook PC and a PDA into an extremely useful product.
