IPad in the Enterprise part 2.
The answer is yes; I for one have one and wrote this post on it using wiriting tool such as plaintext to write the post, which then syncs with dropbox which allows me to access my documents from the cloud.
I know of at least 5 other people with them in a reasonable sized office, which isn't a huge amount, but we never saw the same traction with netbooks in the enterprise which was the last big change in computing.
The reason people are giving for adopting them is for when they travel, the MS Exchange capabilities allows them to read and reply to email on a decent sized screen with a battery life that's way beyond any laptop. The upside is the same device allows users to read, listen to music or watch movies too.
December 3, 2010Nice article. I agree with you -- we will see more iPad penetration in the enterprise. There was a study released earlier this year to that affect.
Also, what are your thoughts on the Blackberry Playbook. RIM already has the corporate base with the Blackberry handsets and the BES server. The Playbook seem like a natural evolution for the enterprise.
Thanks for the tip on using PlainText. I just downloaded it. Have you looked at BlogPress? Nice app that connects to your blog.
