At work we are trying to deploy a mobile work order system for our service techs. The only problem is most PDA's have no keyboard, which makes data entry rather tedious. The few PDA's that DO have a keyboard, like the Treo, have crappy quality and tiny tiny buttons. The mobile version of the software doesn't work on a normal Windows laptop, and laptops are bulky and take forever to boot. The Clio would be the perfect compromise, with a useable keyboard and a large screen, and with the instant-on capabilities of Windows CE.
There are only 3 possible problems. 1. Will the software work with a MIPS processor? 2. Can we get a cellular modem with drivers for Windows CE? 3. Can I find at least 12 more Clios?
It's too bad the Clio concept never went anywhere. I'd love to have one built with modern technology.
