Submission + - Why have tablets never taken off in business? (pcworld.com)

An anonymous reader writes: On PC World's blog, Keir Thomas suggests reasons why tablets have never taken off in business, and explains how Apple's iPad was able to waltz in and steal the entire market. It's all about giving users freedom to figure out how useful tablets can be, he says, rather than forcing them into narrow usage scenarios: "There's a lot to be said for having faith in users to make best use of their computer, without pushing and pulling them in ways you think are best for them." Some of the reader comments provide interesting perspectives too.
