Why Read This Report

In just 12 months, iPad has redefined expectations of what a computer should be: instant-on, highly portable, all-day batteries, always-connected, and app-driven. And Apple has sold 15 million iPads in 2010, clear proof of their value. How many of those 15 million iPads are coming to work every day? Probably half of them. We know you're feeling the pressure. And based on hundreds of conversations about tablets in the past year, we know that most CIOs and their teams have more questions than answers about tablets in the enterprise. We collected the 10 most common questions to give some early answers and point you and your teams towards our most recent mobile research. The time to plan a tablet strategy is now.
