iPhone, iPads Having an Impact on Enterprises

eWEEK reported Dec. 27 that Apple is ordering between 20 million and 21 million more iPhones

to sell in Q1 2011. Many of those will be ticketed for business use as

company executives obtain them for their employees with the idea that

they ultimately will help their businesses gain a new competitive

advantage.

iPhones aren’t the only consumer devices making their way big time into

the enterprise. iPads are also being used for business purposes, even

though they don’t run Windows apps or Adobe Flash.

It’s all about user preference. These things are fun to use, and many

aspects of business aren’t exactly fun, so why not at least use tools

that liven up the daily grind?

“Out of the box, the iPad is sleek, it’s light, it’s cool, a lot of

people got them for Christmas. They’re going to come into work on the

third or fourth of January, and if there’s no real answer for how

people are going to use them, there will have to be very shortly

thereafter,” author and Apple product expert Charles Edge told eWEEK.
