    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.

      Strongly disagree - the iOS variants weak security makes it a non-starter for many business applications. The most common FAQ I've seen is "how do I/we stop people from accessing...?"

      As in other people picking up the iPad and using it, or hacking from elsewhere?

      Though you may disagree, the facts are the iPad is still making huge, fast inroads into businesses all over the world, and IT departments are working with their users as best they can to accommodate them.

      Well that's interesting. It's all well and good to say it's making business in-roads, but let's try this - does anyone on the forum use a work-provided iPad in real life? At my job, IT has long complained that security on the iPad is too weak to let it replace the Blackberrys they equip us with now. The in-roads it seems to be making is as a display device, rather than a work tool; there's limited need for that and even then what I've seen is pretty awkward.

      I have a cousin that is the head of IT for a large 300+ law firm, and he was working excluding from ipad ONE and an hp net book. He showed me grids of the building and camera and security protocols. He's prolly hotwored the white house with a third gen.

      Yes, I'm anti BB, but the OTHER FACTS are they could flop at any moment with their tablet FAIL, apple is in a position to engulf a whole other market. Yes, the interface is weak, but that's because they want you to buy ridiculously expensive software like logmein and those security apps. But it's also an invitation. With the right tools, anybody can make an app now. My uncle is the head of telecomm at a CC and he's about to start on one himself. My university released one right before school ended. Also, if you just browse thru the app store, you can find 100s of business specific apps.
