Panasonic CF-H1 Medical UMPC
Have you ever wondered why medical UMPCs (ultra-mobile PCs) have a built-in handle? When's the last time you saw a laptop that had a built-in handle? Maybe the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project?
Panasonic has the Toughbook CF-H1 Medical UMPC that looks like a very solid device. One of the nicest feature is the screen - it offers either a passive touch screen, or an active digitizer screen if you're using a special tablet pen. It looks like similar to the Motion C5 Mobile Clinical Assistant, but it looks like Panasonic took some of the feedback on the C5 and improved on the design. It's great to see UMPCs used in the healthcare industry. There is such a need for better medication management and monitoring that can all be done electronically now.
