Tablet PCs making more inroads in to hospitals

For those in the medical industry, this looks very promising. From’s Paul Baranowski:


On Monday Intel announced that they will be testing a new tablet pc they have been working on designed to help a medical facility communicate with each other. What I mean by this is doctors being able to quickly get in touch with other doctors or nurses, and visa versa.  …

A prototype of the tablet shown by Louis Burns, vice president and general management of Intel’s digital health group, includes a slot with docking Bluetooth-enabled stethoscope, a touch screen, phone jacks, USB plugs, video conference capability, and other health related electronics.
