    Below is a copy of my blog post, but I'm posting it here because I think that with all the improvements made to the Treo 650, this is finally a wortwhile device for clinical education.

    In a recent lecture by Jeff Hawkins on neurobiology, he said that could immediately look at any smartphone and make a judgement on its usefulness. He used his expertise to refine his design, and there's no other device on the market that is as mature as this implementation.

    As an aside, yesterday I was listening to a program on WNYC where some Billboard analyst was saying that people who now buy the Treo are "early adopters" and they will find out that the battery life is limited when you play mp3s (which was the topic of this show). Then a Treo 600 user called in and said that the downfall of his 600, was that it was "fragile." Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Here's the blog post:

    Medical writer extraordinnaire, Norman Bauman, told me that the latest online issue of the NEJM has an article, "Personal Digital Educators," [no abstract, first 100 words only unless you have a subscription] by Cimino and Bakken from the Columbia U. Medical School Medical Informatics program. The Index page shows two Treo 600's side-by-side. I would think the there's a world of difference in using the Treo 650 with it's better screen, especially for graphics, and the faster processor and improved browser for accessing the Web.

    I still have to retrieve the full article, but I hope it mentions using these devices for clinical support by accessing significant Web reference sites as welll as utilizing pda software.

    I posted this last week:

    but by now the reference is gone (I do not have a subscription). Maybe if you have a subscription, you can d/l and post the article.
