[Tablettes] Professionals should favor Windows over Apple in 2013

by bold-lichterman

Information professionals will prefer to acquire a tablet Microsoft Windows rather than an iPad as the next working tool. In any case, this is what a study predicts Forrester titled “2013 Mobile Workforce Adoption Trends” conducted with nearly 10,000 company employees in 16 countries.


Indeed, 32% of respondents said they wanted a Windows tablet to work in 2013 (2% currently have one), while only 26% of respondents said they wanted an iPad and 12% an Android tablet.

However, the figures are reversed for smartphones: 33% of employees want an iPhone (16% already have one), against only 10% for a Windows Phone and 7% for a BlackBerry. The iPhone should therefore benefit from a resurgence of popularity with employees in 2013, since currently only 16% of them have one, against 18% for Android.

In France, the iPhone remains the terminal most desired by professionals (20%) ahead of Android (15%), Blackberry (7%) and Windows Phone (4%).
