The iPad has carved a spot for itself in every field of human activity that includes education, space travel, medicine, entertainment and according to new research is on the rise in the business sector as well.
Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) research has been tackling this issue recently, with the results suggesting that after the release of the next generation iPad in 2012, business users had a tendency to pick up the device more frequently. CIRP found that in just four months since the device went on sale business usage saw a significant rise.
So far iPad owners would user their tablet to browse online, to check their emails when they weren’t at home, they used apps, played video games and read. But with the introduction of the third generation iPad a change of dogma happened. According to the findings made by the CIRP now, 21% of Apple tablet owners use their device in a work related environment. Social media is also a very popular destination of tech fans with 16% of users login in daily to their Facebook or Twitter accounts.
It might be theorized that the new iPad is inherently more business like as it comes packed with a 4G connectivity option, a sleek processor and a wonderful Retina Display. These features do come in-handy in a professional environment as the better functioning of software is notably improved.
“Now that Apple has launched three generations of the iPad, it’s become clear that they intend it as a tool, not a toy, especially with the improved display and faster connection, stated CIRP partner Michael Levin.
