    For you guys using tablets, what brand and models are you using? Everybody talks about iPads but I'd like to avoid going Apple plus I'd like to save the $200 by using an Android based tablet. Are there non-Apple tablets that are just as powerful and useful?

    The paper is a little pricey and so is the printer but since it is thermal there is no ink that will dry because of the heat inside the truck and since I only need to print 10-15% of my invoices the price of paper is outweighed by the savings in ink.

    At home I have a Acer A500 tablet.

    I will say I have bought a few cheap ones for my son to usemost of the 175.00 and down tablets are junk.

    You will need to get a tablet that has the Google play onit.

    I contacted MobileBiz through their page with a couple of questions. The main one being about what you do mobile "mirroring" or "real time synching" to a home laptop or desktop.

    I never received a response.

    There is also a MobileBiz support forum where a thread was started with the company saying they were working on a desktop version in September of 2012 and were hoping to have it out by December 2012. Nothing so far.

    Hope they get this 'cause it would seem to be great for all mobile small business.

    Just passing on the information I've got so far. Anyone please correct me or direct me to MobileBiz being able to work with desktops/laptops sharing information with your mobile setup.

    Thanks.

    We recently bought Smart Service for our scheduling and tracking. http://www.smartserviceinfo.com/ The iFleet option is one we are going to upgrade to soon. I wasn't able to sit in on the demo before we bought it or the training since but my partner said the iFleet will send anything I do on a laptop or tablet in the truck back to the office in real time. There is a monthly fee associated with it but it saves having to enter all of the information I collect at the jobsite. Evidently you can upload forms that you frequently use into the system and fill them out on the mobile device. Pictures will automatically be attached to the job as well.

    It seems pretty slick. I'll let you all know how it works when I get to that point.
