Windows Tablet Edition
Posted on 2006-06-15
I was told by Panasonic that Windows XP Tablet Edition doesn't support legacy devices like serial/com ports.
We have been looking at purchasing some of their toughbooks.
The toughbook with a digitiser and WinXP Tablet doesn't have a Serial Port which we need to do programming of devices.
They have a WinXP version that has just a touch screen (not digitised) but does have a serial port.
I suppose i have two questions:
A) Can Windows XP Tablet Edition work on a Touch Screen (ie. Mouse can draw ink) (ex. Elo Touchscreens that usually comes with POS terminals) or does it have to have a "digitiser"
B) Can Windows XP Tablet Edition support Serial Ports, from what I have read it is Windows XP Pro with additions can't see why it can't.
If so then I can't see any reason why I couldn't buy the "touch screen" versions and load Tablet on them.
Look forward to your reply and thanks in advance for your information.
