Would you recommend iPads (or other tablets) to your enterprise?
Many "Pad" systems are now available (or almost available).
Some examples are:

Apple iPad
Dell Streak
Blackberry Playbook
Samsung Galaxy Pad

My question is the following.

In an enterprise setting, Would you allow their introduction? If so, what benefits and drawbacks do you foresee?

Function?

by oldbaritone In reply to Would you recommend iPads ...

What are you trying to accomplish with the introduction of tablet devices?

There are many applications where a tablet is a perfect fit. Production control, order processing, supervision/coordination - job functions that don't sit at a desk to do their job.

OTOH, trying to replace desktops with tablets in an office environment will probably flop. They're not the right tool for the job.

So before the question can be answered, the goals and expected outcome of their introduction should be established.

But, for tasks such as order processing

by robo_dev In reply to Function?

most consumer-grade devices are not nearly rugged enough.

Take an iPad and drop it from six feet onto a concrete factory floor and see what happens.

Most devices made for this purpose are IP-rated for dust/moisture and MIL-STD drop-tested for impact resistance.

Only if they suited the job that I was recommending them for.

However as a observation here these devices are not anywhere near sturdy enough for most of the applications that I may consider them for. Though if I'm supplying them it would be regular income but that's not the way that I do business.
