Homebuilt Tablet PC in the works

Saturday, April 16th, 2005
I've decided to see if I can build my own Tablet PC, or at least something like it - something that I can use to evaluate ink-enabled applications before I move to the Tablet PC platform. There have been many discussions about how to do this in the various forums - most recently on the MindManager forum. So far, I have the Tablet OS loaded and MindManager will now launch in pen mode.

I'll have to forage through my junk room to see what I can come up with for a mega digitizer. Perhaps I can retrofit my LiveBoard to the task. Imagine ... a Tablet PC with a 6' drawing surface. That would be really cool. On second thought the LiveBoard weighs over 600 lbs.

I guess I won't be able to call it a tablet.

That would be a "Stone Tablet". :-)

Homebuilt Tablet PC in the works

I Stumbled onto your site this am.

I live in Philly and am thinking about a "brick and mortar" tablet, etc. Store near the universities. "Home Built Tablets", like the more ubiquitous Homebuilt Desktops, are a thought.

I wish I knew about you a few years ago. I am a physician who has done primarily home visits the last 10 years. I have tried to make technology helpful by myself, but I think you would have done a better job!

Hope to be in touch,
