Medical tablets are big business these days, so much so that Intel has dedicated an entire team to developing its Mobile Clinical Assistant platform, and manufacturers have been releasing devices left and right. Part of the reason is the lucrative service contracts and profit margins companies see on products like the MedTab, a $4,000 slab slightly bigger than a PDA that offers up a 624MHz processor running WinCE, a 1,024 x 768 e-ink-based touchscreen, WiFi (802.11g only), Bluetooth, and a fingerprint reader to ensure that the patients don't find out how sick they really are. Manufacturer Emano Tec claims that the 12-ounce MedTab (perfect for your lab coat pocket!) can also withstand falls from up to three-feet high, and IT can easily tell if one is missing or stolen by tracking its position in real time. Plus, if you act now and say that Engadget sent you, they'll knock an astonishing $2,000 off the price (you also have to buy 50, but you can never have too many of these handy tablets, right?).
