The HP TouchPad and Motorola Xoom are legitimate threats to the iPad. And if they were available now, I’d buy them over an iPad. Here’s why:
As awesome as the iPad is it suffers from a significant flaw as far as dentists are concerned…it is a MAC. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 🙂
The fact is (for better or for worse) that all leading dental software applications run on Windows. That means using an iPad is possible but requires some work arounds. A native Windows (or more accurately an Android) system should be easier to use…in theory.
So far there has been a lot of Android-Windows tablet hype but we have yet to see them in action.
