Why to plot a drawing from mobile device?

Why to plot a drawing from mobile device?

Mobile becomes more and more important in our everyday life. “You don’t have to be at your desk to make your work”. This is a new slogan, that in my view, replace an old one – ‘you are here to work’. One of the interesting trends I’m following is how business and home are mixed in the modern life.

I’ve been reading Google mobile blog and found the information about Google’s research related to tablet usage. Navigate to the following link to read more and look at few pictures below showing how people using tables in different situations.

It is interesting to see that “checking email” is on both cases is a dominant activity.

One of the people I follow on twitter shared the following video – Océ MobilePlot 1.1 demo. Take a look.

It made me think about what would be a reason for somebody to plot from a mobile device. I can see few potential options for usage – shopfloor, maintenance and support, and maybe some others. I’d be interested to hear your opinion as well.

What is my conclusion? The mobile and consumerization trends are very powerful. People adoption (and addition) to new devices will go from a place where people watching video on youtube at home and sharing photos on Facebook. Watch these applications – we will see examples of them tomorrow in our offices. Just my thoughts…

Best, Oleg
