I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I don’t want an iPad because it doesn’t replace any of my work tools. I need something to replace my paper notebook and laptop in meetings.
I’m finding that I’m scanning my paper notebook more and more, then emailing the scans to other people in the office. But thats not searchable and ends up in large attachments. (Luckily my writing is legible).
The iPad doesn’t have great Office connectivity or a decent stylus with handwriting recognition. I’ve been keeping an eye on alternative products and this week I thought I’d finally found one. Here’s the video:
Wow – I thought I’d found it.
So I looked up the price. It’s not available in the UK yet, but in the States it’s $999. That’s more than my high spec work laptop!
And the final nail in the coffin was battery life – 2 hours. That’s insane.
So I’m continuing with my paper notebook. Battery life is infinite. Portability is excellent. Cost is about £2.50. The ultimate notebook is still paper.
