The mobilePDR is coming back

The PDR or the Physicians' Desk Reference is a huge drug reference book. Several years ago, I remember using an application called the mobilePDR. Then, things changed and Thomson released the Clinical Xpert for the PDA/Smartphone (which included drug info). Now, it appears that Thomson Reuters is bringing the mobilePDR back.

The mobilePDR will be supported on:
  • Apple iPhone and iPod touch
  • BlackBerry OS 4.1 or higher
  • Palm OS (original)
  • Windows Mobile
  • Symbian S60, 3rd edition (Nokia)
  • Google Android
Hmm, I don't see WebOS for the Palm Pre on that list right now. Maybe they forgot to include it. Or, perhaps they simply think that everyone who owns a Palm Pre will end up running MotionApp Classic emulator.

It's about time we start seeing some medical applications for Google Android. According to Thomson, mobilePDR will require about 100 MB of space and will be available to purchase on a memory card for $14.95. Of course, you can also download the application and install it yourself if you have already have a memory card.
