SMEs are embracing the tablet form factor, as shown in a new infographic, and Apple's iPad is proving the clear winner over Surface and Android devices. The growth of tablet adoption amongst micro-organisations (classified as those with under 10 employees) is projected to be 98% between 2011 - 2016, with 92% of SMEs stating a preference for iPads
The growth of tablets in businesses is connected to the rise of cloud services such as hosted email, cloud storage and unified communications. These services can either be supplied separately or as part of a complete package like Microsoft Office 365.
The modern businesses environment is mobile and tablets provide the mobile experience without the screen restrictions of a phone-size device.
