CES 2009

Now that CES is over, I have time to write about topics that are probably a bit more medically relevant. I'm eager to see how netbooks and other mobile devices get incorporated into the healthcare field.

  • Will the uptake on UMPCs increase as prices fall and as more physicians adopt EHRs?
  • Will touch technology revive the tablet PC industry? Many doctors probably aren't used to writing on a digital screen, so they use their convertible tablet as a standard laptop.
  • Will mobile smartphones become more powerful and replace devices like the iPod, GPS, and PDA?
  • Will doctors give their lectures using micro projectors?
2009 is a very promising year for mobile technology. If the Apple tablet gets released this year, then the tablet buzz will definitely get revived.
