WatchPad 1.5 Bluetooth applications

 

WatchPad can be used not only as a stand-along PDA device but also as a secured wireless front-end user interface device for the adjunct devices such as mobile computers, cellular phones, and other pervasive devices being carried with you using its fingerprint sensor and Bluetooth communications.

The following shows some expecting WatchPad usage of the Bluetooth applications with PCs for the time being.

Security device  - PC password replacement by the fingerprint security feature
Pointing device  - ThinkPad presentation(Freelance or PowerPoint) control
Trigger device  - Automatic event control by approaching or leaving the place
Viewer device  - Check PIM data and e-mail in ThinkPad without opening the lid
In / out device  - Input by text/speech, voice output, and warning by vibration
