iPad As Dedicated Exchange Email Station

ITBusinessEdge: iPad As Dedicated Exchange Email Station

Paul Mah argues that the iPad coupled with an Exchange mail server has a fair amount going for it, including robust security, good e-mail client ‘usability’, support for a keyboard and great browser.

“After getting an iPad recently, I evaluated its usability for small and mid-sized businesses in a blog titled ‘Five Factors to Consider in Deploying the iPad in your SMB.’ In light of the iPad’s Exchange capabilities, I wanted to see if SMBs could benefit from getting the iPad for staffers who only require access to e-mail. Hosted Exchange provider Intermedia was kind enough to enable Exchange ActiveSync for my paid account, which made it possible for me to spend some time exploring the iPad’s Exchange support.

So how does the iPad with its tablet-sized display fare as an e-mail-access terminal? It does look as if the iPad have a few things going for it on that front. I list out some of them below.”
