Design Considerations for Tablet PC Development -- Part 1

I am not sure how many of you have ever needed to design an application for use on a tablet PC (an actual tablet, not a laptop with a tablet type screen), but I thought I would recount some of my trials and tribulations that I haveexperienced in the course of working on my current project. 

Up front, Tablet PC development would not appear to be all that different from normal development for a standard PC, but you have to keep in mind that when there is no keyboard or mouse attached, all prior knowledge gets thrown out the window.

I plan to break down this knowledge dumb into multiple parts and will be posting different parts about 1 per week.

Topics
  • GUI Layout/Presentation
  • To Ink or Not to Ink
  • Data Security
  • K.I.S.S.


I hope that in the end that I will have communicated my experiences well enough that if you should ever develop an application for a tablet PC you will not have the same learning curve that I did.

Till Next time....

Derik,

Sounds great.  I haven't had the opportunity to develop for tablet yet, but I would love to bone up on some ideas for future reference.
