    The Channel reports today on Barclays Bank in the UK snapping up 8,500 iPads, via dealer Insight UK. According to the report, this is one of the biggest investments in any tablet by a UK finance firm. A spokeswoman for Barclays told The Channel that the Barclays staff had expressed a preference for the iPad over any other gadget, and it seems as if they have all been granted their wish. The spokeswoman went on to say that the iPads will be used in Barclays Bank branches all over the country, to help the employees in the branches to interact better with customers.

    According to the report, the Barclays employees will be using a special app called Mortgage Brain on the iPad as one way of helping their customers.
