These devices are all well and good for those who have the time and inclination to play on the internet, but how can I use these to get my work done? I am a Systems Admin / Network Admin and use a Windows 7 laptop to connect to work using VPN. After login I can browse our intra-net and with RDC and Dameware Mini Remote Control I can get to all of the PC and servers. How would I accomplish this with an android or other tablet?
I am in IT as well, and iPad2 is the closest to making our traveling brick a little bit lighter. They have a VMware app, and there are more business apps popping up for iPad2. Being on call 24x7x365, I hope to one day carry a 5 or 7 inch tablet instead of my laptop.
