In the 90s, it was the advent of the PC that gave businesses the edge, today it is the tablet PC. First with Apple's iPad, now with BlackBerry, Dell and many others following suit, the tablet PC has become a game-changer for doing business.

In a survey by Change­­Wave, the top two uses of the tablet PC are surfing the Internet and getting email, but some companies are taking the tablet PC to new levels.

Here are three examples of unique uses of the tablet PC.

1. A restaurant is using the tablet PC for patrons to place orders, pay their bills and even write real-time reviews while in the restaurant. They have significantly increased their reviews and their business.

2. A chiropractor has downloaded a special app that allows him to take notes and to graphically show the patient specifically what is happening during their adjustments. Patients better understand their treatments and it saves the doctor time. Business has increased 20% since using this tool.

3. A sales manager issued every salesperson a tablet and now when on sales calls, instead of printing presentations, he or she shows a digital presentation. Sales have in­creased 30%. The sales force loves the ability to be high tech, and the clients appreciate a company that is on the leading edge and eco-friendly by reducing paper usage.

The tablet PC is truly changing the way we do business. How will you use the tablet PC to give your business the edge?
