The iPad is trying to make a name for itself not only among the tech savvy consumer crowd, but the business world as well. The iPad is proving to be good for many business related tasks such as showroom order taking and conference demonstrations and it seems more companies are taking notice.

 

Bloomberg News has reported that large businesses like Mercedes-Benz, Tellabs, and SAP AG are implementing the iPad into their workplaces. Wells Fargo, who did two years of company testing before implementing the iPhone for business purposes, put in their orders within weeks of launch for the San Francisco based banks. Megan Minich, a Wells Fargo senior vice president, stated the company had already placed a second order after an initial receipt of 15.

 

Apple would obviously love to see the numbers and percentages mirror those of the iPhone of which AT&T states 40% are used in business settings. The iPad could possibly replace a laptop for business trips and with the wave of tablets coming in the future, getting a foothold now is a good idea.
