There have been plenty of reports recently showing the iPad has a stranglehold on the tablet market, so it is not earth shattering that more business users are using iPads as well.
What is extra-surprising is that Android tablet activations in the business world have dropped during the second quarter of 2011, while iPad activations have grown. To put a finer point on the situation, reports indicate that during second quarter there were more iPad activations than the total number of Android tablets and smartphone activtions. Combined.
By the time it was actually released, Apple's tablet computer was akin to a magical unicorn -- a fantasy beast seen by only the favored few, though many, many people told wild tales about it. But as it turns out, the iPad did have some magic tricks up its sleeve: it has "magically" provided Apple with a gateway into the enterprise -- and no, we're not referencing the Starship. We're talking about men and women in suits crunching numbers; a world where Apple hasn't been yet able to gain much ground. Well, until the iPad that is.
