A little over a week ago, Lawyers USA published an article which discussed the various ways that attorneys are already using iPads in their practices. The three primary ways are: (1) content reader, (2) yellow pad in Court, and (3) trial presentation tool.
I was interviewed for this article regarding these trends and discussing my thoughts on the iPad’s future in law offices. I said “The processor, memory and hard drive all work very well together, and very quickly.” However, I pointed out that the clunky file transfer system and the inability to run multiple apps simultaneously are major drawbacks at this time.
However, I predict that they will be resolved as early as this summer with the OS update, and once that happens, I hope to only bring my iPad to court. I said, “I’d like to eventually be standing in court with a one and a-half pound piece of glass and not have to lug paper files around. That’s where I want to be.”
