Being in our IT department I get an opportunity to give suggestions for what types of hardware/devices we could use, etc...
At the requests of some upper management, we started deploying some Apple products (iPhones/iPads) cause that was the cool thing (I guess).
While I am partial to webOS, I tend to push those products a little harder than others. A few of our upper management folks are looking to replace their already tiny laptops for some tablet devices.
All the basically need is email and internet access, be able to display photos and videos, PDFs and give presentations (ala Powerpoint).
One of the folks up the food chain happened to stumble upon a TouchPad at a local Best Buy and with his prior knowledge of the products and software (via Me), he found it very intriguing, however, the question he asked is, "Can I hook this TouchPad to a projector or monitor display for giving presentations, etc...?"
As far as I know, this is not possible with the current TouchPad due to lack of hardware supporting features, correct? I know the iPhone/iPad crowd can with a dongle attachment to VGA, etc...
Maybe there is a projector or even newer monitor displays that can do a presentation via wi-fi/bluetooth?
Sucks, but it looks like on that fact alone (right now), the TouchPad wouldn't work for us (Sales/Management folk) for giving presentations. They will most likely go the route of the iPad.
Anyone have any further ideas or possibilities where this could be even remotely possible with the TouchPad? One can hope for something like video out in a future version I guess.
