A worthy handheld platform for FilemakerPro use in standup contexts
I've asked here months back if anyone has tried a small handheld sized PC Tablet which works well as a Filemaker client platform... and no answers...
So I will answer it myself.
I have taken a gamble for a big project and bought a refurbed Samsung Q1. The gamble paid off well. This thing is absolutely ideal for a user context where they are standing and walking around while using a FilemakerPro application. It has wifi, good screen res, the touch works well, a split qwerty keyboard (ok... it's tricky to use the keyboard in the dark) and a fiingerprint ID scanner that's very quick and reliable. With a maxed sized layout on it the thing looks nice, polished and totally TURNKEY!!! Perfect for a warehouse app, a physical inventory app, etc...:smileyhappy:
I have reviewed it further on the Filemaker Success Tips Podcast:
... which by the way is coming on on it's 1 year anniversary! WOOHOO!
The review will likely be downloadable before DEVCON... where BTW Lee and I will be recording segments at a booth in the exhibit hall!!
