Although BETT was interesting, it wasn’t for seeing (and trying out) some brand new devices and platforms unfortunately, but two updates (demonstrated in CES) that may be of interest concern Palm’s possible resurgence with webOS and the ASUS tablet developments. [The EEE Top is also interesting – a bit like a Linux iMac(!) with touch capabilities – if that’s not too confused].
On an internal note, colleagues are welcome to join the next MTech meeting, details as follows:
Date: 27 January from 15:00 to 17:00
Venue: Library Presentation room (ground floor, next to the Digilab).
If you can’t make the whole two hours please feel free to drop in when you can.
For this meeting we’d like to invite you all to share your ideas about mobile applications or services that the Open University should be developing, or comment on ideas that other people bring forward. We can’t guarantee that any of these ideas will be taken forward, but if we have some definite suggestions written down we’ll be in better position to bid for funding or developer time when it does become available.
On this note, we’re pleased to welcome Paul Hogan to the group. Paul is the new Mobile Applications Developer in KMI and will be initially concentrating on developing applications for the iPhone/iPod Touch.
Please let Keren Mills know if you’d like to attend.
