According to a global survey conducted by research firm IDG, 91 percent of IT and business professionals use their Apple iPad for work.
This is despite the fact that only a quarter of the devices have been supplied for corporate use.
IT professionals, like consumers, use their iPad for media consumption, with 97 percent of respondents noting that they use the device for reading. However as many as 79 percent of users also use their device “on the road” while working.
The iPad’s success hasn’t really come at the cost of other devices, with only 12 percent saying that their iPad has completely replaced their laptops. An even lower 6 percent of respondents said that their iPad had completely replaced their desktop.
Other highlights of the report include:
- 70 percent now buy fewer physical books and newspapers
- 72 percent of iPad owners carry their laptop less
- 66 percent say the iPad has partially or completely replaced their laptop
- The survey revealed a robust loyalty to Apple with 83 percent globally stating they would not consider buying a different tablet device next time.
