The tablets have entered the workforce. According to Gartner, by 2013, 80% of businesses will support a workforce using tablets. Forrester Research wrote that the web as we know it is “a dying technology.” We now have gammes of mobile devices that provide an endless choice of applications. Even Sesame Street caught on last year that no matter what you want to do.. “there’s an app for that”.
While it’s still unclear whether Apple will be able to claim the entire market thanks to their expansive patents, it’s clear that the iPad is well positioned to become the #1 tablet in the workplace. A recent study from comScore showed the iPad as dominating worldwide, accounting for over 89% of tablet traffic across all 13 markets that were surveyed. Here at Seesmic, we don’t have a preference of Android vs Apple devices, but we did discover that salesforce.com, for whom we will be launching our Seesmic CRM for Salesforce application on Android August 30th, also didn’t have their own iPad application.
