iMedicalApps ran a review on Tuesday of Google’s tablet, the Nexus 7. Although other sites, such as MIT’s Technology Review and PC World, reviewed the tablet back in July, iMedicalApp’s analysis by Iltifat Husain, MD is a must-read because it addresses the issues that are most pertinent to medical professionals. Dr. Husain, who is an Emergency Medicine resident at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine and the founder and editor-in-chief of iMedicalApps, evaluated the tablet’s usability for medical staff based on the how well Google’s medical apps stack up to Apple’s (they don’t), the device’s portability (it fits in your lab coat pocket!), and the price (at $199 the Nexus 7 is not as much as a financial burden for cash-strapped medical students and residents as an iPad).
Dr. Husain concludes his review stating he uses the Google’s tablet more than his iPad when he is at the hospital but gravitates towards the iPad for medical-related uses outside the hospital’s walls. Read his full review.
