Couldn’t this be a Tablet PC?

Here’s a picture of a guy from FEMA going door to door in Oklahoma checking on residents who have been out of power from the ice storms. He’s carrying a clipboard with lots of papers. Surely what he writes will then get typed into a computer. Wouldn’t it make more sense to use a Tablet and do the data entry directly?

The benefit of the clipboard however is it’s light weight and it’s not dependant on battery life. Yes, it’s cheaper, too.

  1. Julie, your comments at the bottom says it all. However, we should remember one thing. We techies would like to replace everything with technology if not to some extent. The problem is technology will not solve all the problems, it can only do so much.

  2. Tablets are too big … Pocket PCs that have streamlined data entry are more effecient.And their cheaper and less prone to breaking than a tablet.
