Tablet Pc: Power of a Pc in your Pocket

By: Darlene Kaitlene

A device that fits in the pocket of a cargo pant yet does the work of a laptop: this is what Tablet PC is! No keyboard, no mouse; only operate this computer with a stylus or a digital pen. Some of these devices can be operated with fingertip even. Powered by the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition operating system, and equipped with a touch sensitive screen designed to interact with a compatible pen, the Tablet PCs are fully-functional laptop PCs; and in some cases even more than that.

Replacing the mouse, this palmtop gives you the leverage to use the pen directly on the screen to do things like select, drag, and open files. Say goodbye to the keyboard; Tablet PCs are equipped with handwriting recognition technology that is effective at recognising natural cursive writing, rather than letter-by-letter recognition. Contrary to a touch screen, the screen of this device receives information from a special pen only.

Surprisingly, Tablet PC does not take information from fingers or your shirt sleeve thereby leveraging you to rest your wrist on the screen and write naturally. Thus the PC becomes more comfortable and easy to use because of interacting directly with the screen. The hassle of handling the mouse or keyboard is now a matter of past. No need to find a flat space to put your PC on; nor is there the disturbance of a vertical screen becoming a dividing wall between you and the person you interact.

Taking the freedom of usage even further, Tablet PC allows you to use them while you are in a standing position. It is certainly a great privilege for professionals like doctors, foremen, and sales managers who are mostly on the move. Within a short time of their initiation, this power packed, small device got immense popularity. Different versions of Tablet PCs are available in the market. One can get them in the size, processing speed and design of his choice.
