The Fujitsu Siemens Computers' Stylistic ST Series Tablet PC, which combines a PC with the functionality of a clipboard or notepad, was recently launched in the Middle East at a function held in Dubai.
The Stylistic ST Tablet PC will also be unveiled in Abu Dhabi on November 19. The new generation Tablet PC from Fujitsu Siemens Computers coincides with the launch of the Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC edition, a new version of Windows XP professional, that permits direct writing on the screen using a digital pen, taking handwritten notes with electronic ink and saving the notes in handwriting format.
Specially designed for mobile professionals in the healthcare, sales, insurance and government sector who spend much of their working day on their feet, the Stylistic ST enables the user to look up records from a database, scribble down client information and inform them about their transaction history all at the same time.
Notebooks and laptops have typically been designed for horizontal sectors using a wide variety of productivity software. However, the Tablet PC which combines the capabilities of the notebook with those of desktops, targets the diagonal user who uses vertical as well as horizontal applications.
The Stylistic ST 4000 integrates electronic ink into everyday business applications. The user can add ink comments in Microsoft Word 2002 documents and write and send ink e-mail with Microsoft Outlook 2002. It also makes it possible to share handwritten documents with other PC users, regardless of whether they have a Tablet PC or not. In addition, users can extend existing applications with pen and ink and develop new applications using this technology. — (menareport.com)
