91% of business pros use iPad for work communication

IDG Connect released the results of a new survey on Monday that shows 91 percent of business and IT professionals use the iPad for work communication rather than personal communication.

The study also showed that almost 25 percent of employers supplied the iPad to employees.

IDG also found:

  • 97% of professionals use the iPad for reading
  • 70% + now buy fewer physical books and newspapers
  • 72% of iPad owners carry their laptop less
  • 66% say the iPad has partially or completely replaced their laptop

If you think this applies to all tablets, think again. According to IDG, “the survey revealed a robust loyalty to Apple with 83% globally stating they would not consider buying a different tablet device next time.”
