Re: Proves the real reason for tablet computers:
Actually, I visit between 6-10 customers a day, I can write inspection reports, sign up new contracts which the customer can sign on the screen, keep health and safety documents, deliver reports electronically, quote, email, message, Skype, invoice, produce receipts, take payments, make payments..... And the battery lasts all day.
I concede typing can be a bit of a bind but the tablet is much more versatile for me on the road.
Additionally while waiting for customers who are late I can blog, read a book, listen to music, watch a video, take a video, take a photo, edit and....... Play the odd game.
And still the battery lasts. Oh and I can print via a portable printer but rarely have to.
And yes, mine IS shinier than yours, the new iPad.
