Deploying the Apple iPad in the SMB

ITBusinessEdge: Deploying the Apple iPad in the SMB

“Finally, the secret that we all knew about has been officially unveiled. Apple announced the iPad tablet earlier this week at a media event that ground the tech news stream to a near standstill, gave Twitter a bad case of hiccups, and singlehanded slowed the Internet for the rest of us. The verdict? Well, many appear to love it, though some hate it, calling it nothing more than an oversized iPod Touch. Pretty strong opinions for a product that most of them have only seen in pictures, I’ll say.

But jokes about the sanitary merits of Apple’s latest tech product aside, or allusion to how this particular tablet differs from certain stone ones that came replete with carved commandments, can businesses expect to gain anything from the iPad? After all, this is a consumer-level device primarily designed as an entertainment gadget for coffee tables, right?

Today, allow me to present a couple of practical uses that the iPad might just hold for the SMB.”
