Exploding iPads in the workplace

Apple’s iPad has “exploded” on to the enterprise scene, according to industry watchers Forrester. Could this lead a decline in laptop and desktop PC sales? Well it’s certainly giving IT Directors something to think about.

Forrester’s report, called How iPads Enter The Workforce, says that iPads will make an impact at the office and its release has kick-started an “arms race for smart mobile devices,” with similar offerings including the Cisco Cius, Dell Streak, Samsung Galaxy Tab, RIM PlayBook, HP Windows 7 Tablet giving users greater choice than ever before.

Apple’s most recent financial figures revealed that the Cupertino, California-based giant sold 4.19 million iPads during Q4 2010. Added to the 3.2 million sold during its first quarter in the wild, Apple has shifted around 7.5 million iPads in just six months, which is not at all bad considering the iPhone sold between 3.5 – 4 million during its first six months on sale.
