Picture the following: You are in your car about to leave and you suddenly realize that you forgot your “device” . You stop and think: “Do I need it enough to go back and get it?”. That scenario was posed to us during the February 2006 Microsoft Mobility Partners conference, where the groundwork for the Origami / Ultra-Mobile PC platform was introduced, and I wrote about here and here. It was that kind of device the UMPC is aiming to be long-term.
So, GBM readers and Tablet PC / UMPC community: What is that “Go Back and Get It” device for you? Is it your cell phone, your smartphone, your UMPC, your tablet pc, your “whatever”? Why is it a “Go Back and Get It” device for you? Does it currently exist for you and your work / personal needs?
Post your thoughts – we’d love to hear from you! I’ll post my thoughts on the issue as a follow-up article, and tell everyone what device fits that scenario for me and what currently doesn’t fit that scenario.
