From the NYT article (the source of this blog spam):

"Autodesk will soon introduce a free mobile version of the software that will run on the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. That version has more limited capabilities, Mr. Hanspal said. But with it, an engineer, for example, could bring drawings to a job site on an iPad, rather than on a big roll of paper, and make annotations on them."

It will probably be something similar to Autodesk Design Review:


isn't the ipad screen very reflective and hard to read in sunlight (like that which would be on a jobsite)?

In practice it's not that big a deal. Sometimes you have to tilt the screen or shade it.

But that's more than made up for in the added usefulness. For reference, i have a far harder time reading an HTC Incredible in the sun.
