Since the Apple Tablet (iPad/iSlate) is supposedly a week away from its launch, we might as well look into the potential of this device. It turns out that the gadget would make a good tool for doctors and people from the medical segment. Some even claim that time Steve Jobs spent in the hospital in recent years, made him realize that doctors need a new digital tool for their work.

The rumour even has a decent basis, as Jason Wilk, an entrepreneur claims that the Apple representatives have recently met with administrators at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA, in order to discuss the potential use of the upcoming tablet as a medical device. Low cost should be crucial for such a product!
