Everybody has an ax to grind, and Apple seems to be the biggest target on the technology block these days. James Kendrick explains why ZDNet has become the Entertainment Tonight of technology news sites.
The fact is, apart from the larger display and faster performance, the iPad Pro doesn’t bring anything new for the enterprise.
When you look at the iPad Pro carefully you realize that it runs the same apps as smaller iPads.
Except for the ones that are optimized for iPad Pro. Likewise, I guess, a Mac is just an overpriced Windows PC because it can run all Windows apps, too.
There will be no app advantage for the entrprise over existing iPads.
Except for screen size, CPU and graphics, plus optimized iPad Pro apps. Otherwise, no advantage at all.
In some enterprise settings the larger tablet mey even be a negative. Field workers may find a smaller iPad to be more practical than the comparatively giant iPad Pro, even with a keyboard in place.
Duh. If only Apple had a smaller iPad in the line.
In spite of what the pundits think, it’s not tailor-made for the enterpise. For most of that market it’s just a bigger iPad.
The so-called enterprise is a large and diverse group with varying needs. How about if I bet that some of the find the iPad Pro more than just a big iPad. Remember, the original iPad was just a big iPhone. And the iPhone is nothing more than a small, pocket-sized Mac.
Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe ZDNet is becoming more like BuzzFeed every day. Articles on both have about the same amount of words, insight, and value.
