This is a tablet pc? It looks like a laptop! Where is the handwriting recognition, why is there a trackpad?
It’s a cool looking laptop, but not a tablet.
Its a laptop/tablet hybrid. These machines have been around for a while, and would seem to be more useful than the typical tablet because of the prescense of the keyboard. Just because it has a keyboard, and a trackpad, doesn’t mean that there isn’t handwriting recognition, or that you can’t draw on the screen. It just means that you don’t always have to use handwriting. you can pull the screen up, flip it around and type when you need to.
i can walk into sams right now and pick up an xp based tablet for about $1k usd. granted its not that beefy of a laptop, but thats what i see people buying who are getting a tablet/laptop hybrid. they arent wanting a powerhouse, they just want the convienience.
i would be all over it if it was near or less than $1k (and if i could get the handwriting recognition working under a different distro)
Does this thing have handwriting recognition? I didn’t see it mentioned anywhere. I would think that would be something you market…
“With its large 12” diagonal display and digital pen, Toshiba’s Portégé® easily supports daily use as notebook, as well as the comfort of a Convertible Tablet PC for creating handwritten notes, drawings, or to annotate documents directly on the screen. Save them in your own handwritingor convert them to typed text! “
So, how many ways can you tell me that I was right?

SCO surely is massively innovating nowadays…their OS is running on everything from PC’s to watches to tablets!
Way to go SCO!
I recently implemented a Toshiba Stylist Tablet PC for a client of mine. Personally, it didn’t suit my personal uses very well (hey, someone had to test it ;-), but it’s quite appropriate for my client, a physical therapist. In his office, patients use the Tablet as a form of “mobile kiosk”, tracking their progress through his rehabilitation programs.
The hybrid tablets, OTOH, would definitely fill a much broader niche. Even though the Stylist has a docking station with wireless keyboard (both optional), it doesn’t suit me well for laptop coding. A hybrid would be the perfect ticket. Once these start to drop below the $2k price point, expect to see more mainstream businesses adopt them.
SCO? This is Lycoris. Can you not read or something?!
D3M0N… I think he (Brian) was SARCASTIC…
GOOD ONE Brian… LOL… way to go SCO… ha ha ha…
Is just the OS available?
No, it is not.
