Microsoft: Tablet PC “Ideal for School”

Sometimes it is interesting to look at past statements by corporate representatives. Elisa Batista reported in Wired News September 4, 2002 about the then new Tablet PC. While Microsoft plans to target all consumers with the tablet, the company considers it ideal for school.

“We really see it replacing the notebook computer,” said Kelly Berschauer, the tablet PC product manager at Microsoft. “Just like you can’t live without your computer mouse today, we think the digital pen will replace the mouse.”

We’ve seen reports of excellent use of the Tablet PC in about 150 schools. From anecdotes, it seems educators searched until they could find someone to help them locate and obtain Tablet PCs for use in many of those schools. I wonder if Microsoft still considers the Tablet PC ideal for schools. What is the Microsoft Tablet PC marketing program to schools?
