    BlackBerry is no longer what it used to be for enterprise and government clients. And as its appeal is fading away, Apple’s iPad steps in to fill the gap. Shortly after the launch of the iPad, Steve Jobs said that Apple doesn’t need to market or promote the iPad for enterprise clients as “it’s being grabbed out of our hands, anywaysâ€.

    However, this has changed under Cook’s rule and the launch of the new iOS 7 operating system has been used to market the iPad for business users. According to Apple, 94 percent of the Fortune 500 companies and more than 85 percent of the Global 500 are already “testing or deploying†iPads, which is a very impressive number, indeed.

    Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair says that BlackBerry’s decline has opened up a significant opportunity for Apple, since Android continues to struggle to become an interesting proposition for enterprise consumers.

    Also, let’s not forget that Apple’s latest iPads come with the latest 64-bit platform which should make way for high-performance apps to be released for enterprise use.

    I found this article exceptionally difficult to read , not for its content but more so for the unacceptable number of spelling errors .

    Do people not proof read their articles before subjecting their readers to a literary nightmare ?

    I gave up reading within the first paragraph , utterly disgusting .

    What are you talking about? I don't see any spelling errors unless I'm reading the wrong article.

    My only question about using iPads for serious business use is that the lack of file sharing and management has to be a hindrance at times, doesn't it? I've used mine at work here and there and it's great but it seems that for what we do the lack of file management and such would become an issue. I guess it depends on the business and what they actually do. I see iPads being used more and more in restaurants, cafés, places like that. The cupcakes store in the mall the other day did the whole transaction on an iPad which was cool. :)
