  33. Wireless Connectivity Operating Your Device Practice Exercise #5 (PDA Users) Connect to PDA Resources/Websites

  34. What is a Tablet PC? • Portable computer - similar to a laptop • Digital Pen/stylus instead of a keyboard • Two main types: Toshiba Protégé M700 Motion C5 Convertible Tablet PC Slate Tablet PC

  35. What do the buttons do? • Operating the device Basic Tablet PC Functionality

  36. Operating Your Device Practice Exercise #1 (Tablet Users) Buttons & Functionality Basic Tablet PC Functionality

  37. Caring for the Digitizer Pen • The pen contains sensitive electronics. Always • store in the pen holder when not in use. • Do not store the pen vertically on the tip. Constant • pressure can affect functionality. • Do not immerse pen in liquids. • Tips have 6 - 12 months life • expectancy.
