Team Tegatech having fun: Taking the Tablet!
CeBIT was extra special for me this year, not only was I speaking at the Webciety conference but my little business (Tegatech Australia) was exhibiting at the show too. I have presented at CeBIT for the last four years and each year is more exciting than the last. I made my way to stage and while the audience was small it was full of familiar faces.
Presenting at CeBIT Australia: Webciety Conference
Not surprisingly as I pulled out the iPad the crowd seemed to double and grow each minute I presented. Then the TEGA Tablet came out, a Tablet made by our little business. Obviously the sentence to follow will contain some amount of praise but given I’ve worked with Tablets for almost a decade I can suggest there is good reason for an iPad alternative to exist.
Crowd builds as TEGA Tablet and iPad come out
The TEGA Tablet multi-tasks, has built-in 3G and SSD options, but best of all it accepts handwritten input thanks to the inclusion of a carefully written Human Interface Device (HID) driver. With this driver users can write on the screen and have those notes transcribed into text (extra great when running Windows 7 Professional) or have those same notes left as handwritten format for reading later. Ultimately with all its ports and full Operating System I think the business community in particular will welcome the TEGA Tablet, or anyone that is above 16yrs of age and doesn’t own a pair of white earphones.
Interviewed for CeBIT TV
The show was great this year and there seemed to be a bigger push from medium sized exhibitors showing off their wears! There was a huge Korean pavilion and even one from Shenzhen China – famous for iPad clones. It was a little strange to see some of the clones on display as I am pretty sure where the iPad clones go lawsuits follow shortly after! I enjoyed myself and I thank anyone that came and spent time with us, and for those of you that missed out we/I will be back at CeBIT Australia 2011!
