iPad For The Office Revisited

PCWorld: iPad For The Office Revisited

Could the iPad work as a tool for mobile workers in your small business? PC World’s Galen Gruman reviews pros and cons and many of the tools available to exploit the business possibilities of the device.

“Sure, the iPad is a great device for Web surfing, book reading, and movie watching. But it’s also getting a lot of interest in corporations as a possible business device for field forces, nurses and doctors in hospitals, and knowledge workers in the office and on the go.

That interest is obvious from the top iPad downloads from the Apple App Store, where Citrix Receiver, an app that makes the iPad a portal to server-based apps such as Microsoft Office and SharePoint, has stayed in the top five almost every day. Also in that top-downloads list are Apple’s iWork productivity trio (Pages, Numbers, and Keynote) and two Microsoft Office-compatible productivity apps (Quickoffice Mobile Connect Suite and DataViz Documents to Go Premium).”
