Juniper Research predicts that tablet shipments will reach 81 million a year by 2015. The significant growth will be due to an increasing number of consumer electronics players and handset manufacturers entering the market. But not all tablet PCs are created equally and the current crop of devices have limited business appeal. As a result, the majority of workers will not be able to replace their laptops with a tablet and, since they typically already have smartphones, a tablet would be a third device for which most organisations will be reluctant to pay. Is Apple’s iPad 2 any different?
