The third-generation iPad is an enterprise hit, a new survey says. But enterprise adoption of the much-rumoured iPad mini is far from certain given its small, eye-straining screen and presumed lack of a Retina display.
Good news for Apple: The third-generation iPad released in March appears to be an enterprise hit, says a recent survey.
Bad news for Apple: The reasons for iPad's enterprise success don't bode well for the much-rumored iPad mini's chances in the enterprise.
Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, or CIRP, surveyed more than 1,000 consumers and found that one in five who bought the third-generation iPad planned to use the device for business. Yet only 13 percent of users across all iPad models have the same intentions.
So what's the third-generation iPad's big business advantage? It's unclear, and CIRP doesn't say.
There's not much difference between the new iPad and the iPad 2, with the exception of a Retina display and 4G LTE connectivity. All iPads have the exact same screen size. While a Retina display offers some productivity advantages, 4G LTE is still in its infancy in terms of network availability.
