More than just a toy: iPad accounts for 91% of all enterprise tablets

iPad Most Popular Business Tablet

It really does bear repeating: Many businesses see the iPad as much more than “just a toy.” AppleInsider draws our attention to the latest report from mobile enterprise software vendor Good Technology showing that the iPad accounted for 91.4% of all enterprise tablet activations in the fourth quarter of 2013 while Android tablets accounted for just 8.6% of all tablet activations. The industry that seems to like the iPad the most is the financial services industry, which Good says accounted for 46.8% of all iPad activations on the quarter. Other industries that activated a lot of iPads in Q4 included business and professional services (13.9%), manufacturing (9.4%) and government and public sector (9%). Again, none of this is to say that iPads or Android tablets are about to replace PCs or anything close to it but it does show that anyone who dismisses them as “toys” does so at their own peril.
