Tablets continue to reshape workplaces

  • An increasing number of people are now using tablets at work and experts have begun to wonder as to how far these devices will go. 

    "Work is an activity; not a place," chief information officer at Dayton, Phil Go said. "We're eliminating the barrier of having to be in a physical office to be productive." The firm has piloted an initiative that lets people use their own tablets and the program reflects the usage across several industries.

    It's not hard to understand why tablets are popular, considering that they're convenient in terms of applications and an Internet connection. However, some researchers don't believe these devices will take the place of desktops and laptops when it comes to typing long documents. Moreover, tablets have also resulted in the need for more wireless capacity to include their usage.
