  • While many traditional marketing methods have been disrupted or killed off by changing tech trends, the rise of tablets has been a surprising boon to at least one venerable marketing strategy—one-on-one sales presentations. Tablet presentationsare a lot more hip than the old flipbooks that sales reps have carried in the past, and allow presentations to include more depth of content.  And when the representative has closed the deal, he or she can accept payment right on the spot with a credit card reader hooked into his tablet’s USB port.
  • Although iPad popularized the concept of tablet computing, the tablets have been around since late 1980’s. The infographic depicts the evolution of tablet PCs.

  • Android is Google version of Linux current version jelly Bean – next is KitKat –because not deisngingsoftawar e nd hardware algonside, sometimes there is an element of shoe-horning
  • Windows RT – no upgrade path – will get droppedMicrosoft: Great network and application interoperability if your business is a Microsoft shop.  Ease of access to Office products and a great user experience.  However, it lacks a vibrant user and developer community today.  So, if you’re looking to extend the user experience through applications, you will currently need to look elsewhere. - See more at: http://www.npengage.com/mobile-computing/the-best-tablet-for-business-use/#sthash.LeVPlxqO.dpuf
  • Android: Possibly the most open system from a customization aspect, Android devices have the user and developer community that Microsoft lacks.  In my experience, they require a bit more of an advanced user, though.  And, they lack direct support for key Microsoft Office products. - See more at: http://www.npengage.com/mobile-computing/the-best-tablet-for-business-use/#sthash.LeVPlxqO.dpuf
  • Apple: Apple easily wins the fight for overall usability and network of developers, in my opinion.  There is an extensive list of business applications available for iOS devices, making it easy to extend this table to do more than Internet browsing and word processing.  It is not an open platform, however, and does not have easy integration into Microsoft Exchange/Sharepoint-based businesses. - See more at: http://www.npengage.com/mobile-computing/the-best-tablet-for-business-use/#sthash.LeVPlxqO.dpuf

    • 77. Serco Internal Deploying iPads across an organisation • Apple generally has its own way of doing things, and device management is no different. You can use configuration profiles for iPad administration, similar to the way you useGroup Policy to manage Windows computers, but the level of control you have over iPads with configuration profiles isn't as deep. You can take actions to lock out the App Store, install certificates, disable features such as Web browsing and instant messaging, and even lock down the screen to a single app in kiosk situations. The configuration profile also enables you to preconfigure accounts such as the mail client,Wi-Fi networks, and virtual private networks. • The configuration profile is really just an XML file that contains the custom details about the settings required for the iPad. To distribute these settings, an Apple utility called Apple Configurator has three modes -- Prepare, Supervise and Assign - - that follow the lifecycle of the tablet.
