The biggest hurdle to iPad adoption
As much as I would have loved to see Microsoft Office remain off the iPad for competitive reasons, the reality is that there are more iPads in organizations than just about any other tablet. Until now, I would see my colleagues kloogy presentations and documents together based on web-based tools and third party applications, but really it's not where it needs to be for business. With Microsoft Office for iPad, it could be the final barrier to standardizing iPad as a solid business tablet (Sorry Microsoft), since it would change the iPad from being a consumption device to an actual creation tool. Great news for productivity and mobile workers, and a great step in the movement towards BYOD/CYOD. But yes, it has to be done right.
