Dell yesterday released the results of its 2014 International Tablet survey of IT Decision Makers (ITDMs) which indicates the current implementations of tablets in the workplace. Tablets are good for business, increasing mobility and productivity, and also getting a favorable reception from employees. According to the survey, Android is the most frequently used operating system globally for tablets. But, Windows and iOS also are widespread. Android dominated the usage numbers in the developing nations like India, Brazil, China and Russia. Surprisingly, Windows is the most frequently-named operating system in the US (72%).
With Surface Pro 3 gaining momentum among the enterprise, we should see more adoption of Windows tablets in the future. Also, the upcoming Windows 10 includes several enterprise focused improvements included in it. The market for tablets in general saw decline in the past two quarters, even Apple’s iPad sales went down. If Windows tablets adoption are increasing in this tougher market environment, then Microsoft should be happy about it.
