With the Business Tablet Plan, all business-critical applications and tools will be accessible wherever our customers are in the UAE, available through their favourite tablets,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, Chief Commercial Officer, du.
There is enough evidence and research to prove the growing demand of tablets:
As per Forrester research, since the launch of the iPad in 2010, more than 200 million tablets have been sold worldwide. Compare this with the laptop which went from 2 million unit sales in 1990 to just 29 million 10 years later.
According to a new forecast from the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker, tablet shipments are expected to grow 58.7% year over year in 2013 reaching 229.3 million units, up from 144.5 million units last year. IDC now predicts tablet shipments will exceed those of portable PCs this year.
Gartner analysts said enterprise sales of media tablets will account for about 35 percent of total tablet sales sold in 2015. These sales will not be clearly defined as enterprise purchases. Gartner expects enterprises to allow tablets as part of their buy your own device (BYOD) programme.
Tablet adoption is increasing among corporate tech buyers. In 2012, ChangeWave Research polled a group of business IT buyers and found that 22 percent of them planned to purchase tablets for their employees sometime in the second quarter of 2012. Of those, 84 percent say they’re likely to buy Apple iPads.
Notifications will be delivered upon consumption of 70%, 85% and 100% data usage. To subscribe to Business Tablet Plan, business customers can visit any du Shop, contact their account manager, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
