The future of Windows-tablets
The future of Windows-tablets
Despite rumors of refusal of some manufacturers of laptops with Windows 8 due to weak consumer demand, the fate of the operating system has not been fully defined. In business, there are still those who continue to believe in the Windows and believes that the future of the operating system by Microsoft.
According to Patrick Moorhead, a former top manager of AMD, and now an analyst Moor Insights and Strategy, a tablet computer running Windows has all the prerequisites of being firmly fixed in the business segment. In a note to investors, he said that despite the popularity of the end-user iPad, tablets to Apple were not the ideal solution for the business environment. The price of “Aypadov” overstated, and the functional and tools for work in the office is limited. It turns out Apple-tablet took not his place? Now that entered the market a lot of tablet computers, is energy efficient and full Windows 8, instead of the mobile operating system, companies and organizations had a large selection.
Mr. Moorehead gave good arguments in favor of tablets based on Windows 8. First, it is a battery that can give double the life than iPad. In particular, HP’s corporate customers quick replacement battery and motherboard. Second, the business-oriented tablets offer enhanced connectivity scheme, given that Windows 8 devices are compatible not only with applications for Windows 7, but also with all the supplied functions. They have a “functional, which has been adapted and used by businesses.” As for the cost, both tablets it is about the same level, although some Windows-tablets can be more expensive. However, choosing Windows, companies save on tools to manage software that opposes Windows-tablet and iPad.
What follows from this conclusion?
Business-oriented tablets available on the market today offer the best of both worlds (“end user” and «IT»), which puts Apple in a difficult position because of the need to expand the features for business users, analysts said.
Nobody says that the iPad – is the embodiment of what is best for today. He, like any other tablet has its flaws, which many users because of habits developed over the years a blind eye. But despite the bold claims of some CEO, Apple has always been and will be an innovative company that knows exactly what users need, or as it has become fashionable in recent years to call them “customers.” But all the time. Meanwhile Moor Insights & Strategy recommends a corporate environment to revise the program implementation iPad at its plants and focus on solutions from HP, Dell and Lenovo.
By far the best choice for business firm considers tablets Dell Latitude 10, HP ElitePad 900 Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2.
Probably the only thing Mr. Moorehead forgot to mention in my last report, so it is recommend Surface of most Microsoft. But apparently, the curse tablet is not for that, and praise – is premature.
