eWeek has given OneNote the nod as best enterprise personal productivity application

By providing an easy and innovative way to enter information and—even more important—search for it later on, Microsoft’s OneNote distinguished itself from a range of products in this year’s Excellence Awards Personal Productivity category.

OneNote, a digital note-taking application that enables individuals and teams to capture, organize, find, reuse and share notes on any laptop, desktop or Tablet PC, combines the flexibility of a paper notebook with the efficacy of digital media to increase user productivity.,1759,1559948,00.asp


Psion Teklogix and Xplore have done a deal that should mean more sales of the ix104 rugged Tablet PC

Xplore’s iX104 family of rugged mobile computing systems provides multiple benefits to enterprise and vertical market clients seeking to implement Tablet PC systems. As an increasing number of job functions and tasks are handled by mobile personnel, the functionality and ruggedness of mobile computing tools needs to keep pace. Xplore’s Renegade(TM) line of Tablet PCs is designed for mobile applications that require reliable operation and durability in harsh environments such as extreme operating temperatures, rain, dust, intense vibration and 4 foot drops to concrete. For more challenging environments, Xplore’s fully rugged All Terrain(TM) Tablet PC models are UL1604 Hazardous Material Certified and IP67 rated.


Motion Computing’s new M1400 offers biometric security

Motion’s new Tablet offers biometric security, something I suspect we’ll see more and more of in mobile computing. UK publication Vnunet has a profile of the new unit, with a focus on security.

Motion provides a “swipe” finger scanner for security because this is easier to use in the field than a password or PIN to log in, according to Toal.

A password management application can also deliver stored passwords to web sites when authorised by a finger swipe. The Motion M1400 comes with integrated Bluetooth capability, which works alongside an 802.11b/g wireless LAN adapter.
