PCWorld: iPad Update To iOS 4.2 Means Business

Some of the improvements with iOS 4.2 on the iPad (released yesterday), such as the addition of multitasking and a unified e-mail inbox, improve the user experience. Others make it easier for IT administrators to manage, maintain, and protect the devices.

“The iPad has been embraced as a business tool despite some very vocal naysayers proclaiming it a mere consumer toy with no place in the business world. The iOS 4.2 update–expected to be released later today–includes a variety of features that make the Apple tablet even more suited for business use.

Apple’s iPad is not a productivity workhorse, but it is a more than capable device for the vast majority of mobile business computing tasks. You probably don’t want to use it to create a multi-faceted spreadsheet, and I doubt you’d want to write a lengthy white paper on it–but you could if you really had to.”
