UK Courts to Make Use of Tablets Instead of Papers
UK Courts Will Go Paperless to Save Trees and Expenses
According to the website, The Guardian, the British government will no longer make use of traditional paper documents in their UK courtrooms and instead will make use of tablets to store all forms and evidentiary items.
Around 35 Hewlett-Packard tablets, will be given out by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), starting April of 2012, as a test, to Welsh and English prosecutors and later on to judges, jurors and defense lawyers. This campaign will reportedly save the government in paper expenses, in an estimated cost of £50 million (or around $78 million USD) and at the same time, save trees across the country.
As of the moment, there is no news on what kind of HP Tablet will be used for the said government project and most probably it won’t be an HP Touchpad.View Article Source »
