A good article on the challenges and future of mobile computing appears in the July edition of Mobile Enterprise Magazine. Black Diamond’s Todd Einck and TabletKiosk’s Martin Smekal were both interviewed for the story:
Martin Smekal, president and CEO of TabletKiosk, says UMPCs have taken hold in vertical markets such as automation, healthcare, utilities and hospitality and believes adoption will only grow stronger with improvements to next-generation devices. “As we look at UMPCs going forward, there are three pillars these devices should have: battery life of four-plus hours, the ability to be always connected to the Internet and outdoor viewability,” he explains. “We’ll be able to drive all three by 2008.”
In the print edition of the magazine, Tablet PCs and UMPCs from Motion Computing, TabletKiosk, OQO, Fujitsu, HP, and Flipstart are featured.
