How will smartwatches, Google Glass and other wearable mobile technology impact the enterprise mobility management strategies of tomorrow?
Learn how iPhones, iPads and other smart devices have factored into successes in manufacturing by maximizing efficiency and minimizing costs.
Last week’s launches have left mobile workers to decide between the iPad mini, Nexus 7 and the Surface as their tablet of choice. By the same token, IT admins must too decide which platforms to support. Which will it be — one, two or all three?
The release of Microsoft's long-awaited Windows 8 is on the horizon, and with the new operating system comes a handful of new features that promise to please the crowd, whether opting to utilize it on smartphone, tablet, or traditional PC.

It seems like yesterday we were covering Apple's iPhone 4S event on the MaaSters Center, but so is the case with fast-paced technology. You know--another day, another announcement. As ordinary as tech releases may be, today's will be different. It will be another notable day in history for the world's most admired company . If the March 7th event lives up to the hype of previous product announcements, we're in for a great show. Apple looks to remain at the forefront of the increasingly fragmented tablet market today as it elaborates further on "something [we] really have to see. And touch."
Back in March, Apple was big man on tablet campus. Back then, it would've been crazy to suggest that in a matter of months, a cheaper tablet with less features would be in the limelight. But that's just what is happening. Here we are four days away from the launch of the Kindle Fire, and the tablet has edged the pre-launch demand for the iPad 2 by one percent (5% vs. 4% very likely to buy; based on a ChangeWave survey). Remember that at the time of its launch, the iPad 2 generated enough demand for Apple spokeswoman (Trudy Muller) to describe it as "amazing". Also note that the iPad 2 sold out the Saturday after it was released. The ChangeWave survey also found that more than a quarter of the of the 5% shown in the chart to the right have to delayed their decision to purchase an Apple iPad.
I can't recall the first time I used a touchscreen device, so it really has been that long (that, or I have a bad memory). I can however remember a time before touchscreen devices existed...a time where the three essentials for computing were a monitor, a QWERTY keyboard, and a mouse.
Tablets are the current rage in the enterprise mobility space. Businesses are trying to figure out how to use tablets on offense by deploying them to field-facing personnel and as a platform for new types of mobile applications. The IT team (of course) is trying to figure out how to defend corporate data and networks from these new arrivals.
When I first turned on my Xoom, almost 2 weeks ago now, one of the first things I did was check out the Android Market to see what applications were available for Honeycomb. I quickly realized that it wasn’t supported on the tablet yet. I then noticed that the first section of the Market listed “Featured Tablet Apps” and the list had only about 5-10 applications. Today there appear to be around 35 in this section, and it seems to be growing. Most other applications will install if they show up in the Market, however, I have found a lot to be buggy, not sized to fit the full tablet screen and some will crash immediately after opening.
