I don't like Dell too much, but Dell's right on this one!

They're probably factoring in warranties, training for the IT department, etc. that would be tacked on to the costs of these electronic dishes. Yep, they get broken, and a Windows-coordinated IT department won't know much, or maybe anything at all about how to deploy and administer the iPad. Warranties and training don't come free.

What use does an iPad have in an enterprise? We have PC tablets for this purpose. My other sis is a 2nd year RN,  and they're using PC tablets (Fujitsu, I think). iPads are for 10 year olds, really.

That same argument would hold true for Android tablets, as well.  In the article the guy from Dell was saying Android was going to lead the way in Enterprise use.

I agree with jwangyue, if you needed all that you would use a laptop. Now as far as android leading the way, if it runs as good on a tablet as it did on the 5 different phones i had Android will never make it, as far as I'm concerned Android is the biggest pile of crap, nothing but problems with every Android phone I ever had, my friends even have a boat load of problems.

If you need a mouse, keyboard, and a case, you wouldn't be using a tablet, period. You would be using a laptop.

 

In Situations where you do use a tablet, Apple is still one of the best. Especially with its IPS screen where you can have a very wide view angle.
