7. What’s Special Generally lighter than laptop (but single-spindle). Long battery life.
Allows interaction with pen
NOT like PDA: usually no battery in pen, and screen is not touch-sensitive (lenovo/motion coming out with touch-sensitive tablet).
Requires “special” pen (generally inter-changeable among models).
Multiple screen orientations.
8. How does Pen Work? Just like a mouse with all applications and the OS
Allows pen “input” with some applications.
Applications fall into 3 classes with respect to pen:
“pen-aware”: fully capable
“pen-enabled”: some capability/accommodation
“pen-ignorant”: no pen input support
9. Pen-Ignorant Applications Most applications: IE
Pen treated as mouse: demo
CAN take advantage of PEN through special application, Microsoft Journal
Have application “print” to Journal “printer”
Journal allows full annotation (it is pen-aware).
10. Pen-Ignorant Applications What happens when you have to type?
The magical “tablet pc input panel” application.
Supports typing or writing.
Converts to character input.
Also used to enter special characters.
No “training” required!
Models also have special “hot keys” to ABCDE control applications.
11. Pen-Enabled Applications All the Microsoft Office Suite
Support pen-driven navigation and annotation
Allows inserting pen annotations
Look like “images” to other software
12. Pen-Aware Applications Journal
Can do pen-to-ink conversion
Implements paper notebook-like capability
13. Why Tablets? For students:
Can take notes in class (much less disruptive than typing)
Can draw, annotate
Can have combined overhead and computer capability
Draw, then save for later access by students
14. How Much? $1500 base, more like $2000
Should also get a docking station: $200-$5000
Slates sturdier than convertibles, but less flexible
