My post was a non-technical response to the blog, and the blog didn't include any numbers that could be used to judge the assertions being made by Gartner.
BTW, tablets and smartphones are here to stay, but, tablets will have to evolve in order to crack into the enterprise sector in any significant way. The study above did not indicate that the current crop of tablets are that significant. But, they will be, but, they'll have to evolve into more useful gadgets for the business sector.
But, since you asked, I am in IT and have been for close to 40 years, in the mainframe era and in the mini-computer era and now in the web and PC era. and I've worked for major corporations and for the medium size ones and for the smaller ones, and I've also done consulting work, as a developer and as an architect and in management. In short, I have no doubt that I have a lot more experience in IT, overall, than you do.
The only thing you should've conclude from my post above is that, I don't take anything for granted, and I expect better information to go along with studies or reports or assertions. You could learn to be as skeptical and don't just be accepting of everything you're told. Question everything.
