At the risk of seeming flippant (no pun int-- no, I lie, that was a blatant
pun), the only solution that comes to mind for such a person isn't a device.
Tell them to bite the bullet and *hire* a Girl or Man Friday/general

Failing that, and to be serious, if the first-gen iPad can run Dragon's
software, your flipper-handed acquaintance could do worse than to get the
iPad, put Dragon Dictate on it along with whatever calendar or other PA-type
software (s)he needs, and then get down to the hard work of designing
work-flows that will make it all worthwhile.

Now excuse me, I have to go wash my mouth out with soap, and then make a
groveling apology to my Newtons.  :-)
