Battery life? The iPad will last nearly two full work days. You still have to keep your PC plugged in, what's so hard about plugging in the iPad?
Right. If you were the standard for innovation we'd be stuck using Punch Cards.
Because "innovation" has a lot to do with how you HAVE to use it. It is a wireless connection. I'm sure it can actually work on all computers and capable mobile devices. I just don't get the point of advertising the iPad/iPhone functionality when it can work with everything? Then again Apple likes to make things that only work with proprietary connections for some $tupid reason.
Would a doctor really want to carry around a microscope and an iPad or use their currently in place systems and only carry around the microscope?
If you are going to carry around both they could have just grabbed the USB version to begin with.

Does the ability to zoom and scroll at the same time (left and middle) count as "multi"? If so then yes.
Ugh, I wouldn't want to do a touch screen with gloves no matter how well the screen worked.Edited by Kirmie - 6/9/10 at 10:05am
