Tablet PCs and Penn State

penstatetwist22Loren Heniy has linked to a news report of Penn State students using Tablet PCs. HP provided 63 Tablet PCs for the engineering program.   The video shows us what most of us that use Tablet PCs already know. And I guess I find that both comforting and frustrating for the same reason.

The fundamental usage scenarios of Tablet PCs haven’t changed since their inception, and cases like this drive that home. The frustrating part of that is that in many instances those fundamental uses just don’t seem to matter on a larger scale.

Yeah, I know. Niche product.
