With Apple introducing its second generation iPad to much fanfare a
few weeks ago, it's hard to remember that it's been just over a year
since the device was first launched. In some ways, it's the toy we all
want to have, but it's also proving to be a very efficient, effective
business tool. And, personally, I think it's caught on in the window
and door industry faster than any technology than I can remember.
And it's not just the iPad, of course. It's an array of tablet
devices that are coming into the market this year. Many industry people
who have them are saying how great they are. That includes sales guys, technical types and CEOs. Those who don't have one say it's just a matter of time. So how long? That's our poll question of the week.
And, as usual, I'd like to hear from you? How are you using your iPad, your Xoom, your PlayBook or your Galaxy Tab? Are you using one for lead management, sales presentations, quoting? Angy Birds? Netflix? What applications do you foresee for it? Are you ready to scrap your laptop? Email me or post a comment.
