Tablets in the Workforce

Some new research from Forrester Research offers a glimpse into the presence of tablets in the workforce. There’s not a lot of surprising info here, but some useful data points. Apple is the dominant brand, followed by Android. Tablets are a work device for one in 10 information workers globally. Consumerization is the driving force behind workplace tablets, to Apple’s advantage. The application list starts with email and falls off rapidly from there, probably due to the lack of app availability on work tablets.

The survey was fielded in Q4 2011 by Forrester Research’s Strategic Planning Forrsights.

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
