I'm a fan of the iPad, in fact I'm posting this from an iPad. But this survey or perhaps the portrayal of it, seems incorrect. Our company would probably be in that 80%. Dependingnon how that question was sake, I would have said we plan on "supporting" ipads. After all, I hqveoneand so do a couple other people. I've even authorized them on the the secure wifi network.
But you know what? I also received a directive, one sent out to all the IT managers, saying: don't buy any ipads. This is the only directive of this type that I have ever received. It also saod that should a business need arise, that the ban would be lifted.
This scenerio is probably fairly common. IT departments plan on supporting ipads but companies cant justify their purchase and wont actually be buying any ipads. Yet we would still fall into that 80%? That 80% doesn't mean what I think some people think it means.
Edit: vie left in the spelling errors on purpose. It already took way too long to type this post. I should have got up and typed it on the iMac on the other side of the room. Ipads are great, but not necessarily great for productivity or ones wallet.
