I like to push the envelop.
Last year I did a business trip with nothing but a pad of paper and my iPhone just to see if I could still be effective in executing on my management responsibilities.
I now have an iPad…and I love it (usually)
When it comes to the world of mobility and the concept of work/life integration I’m challenged to find another current device that embodies the essence of these concepts better than the iPad. (note: I have also been a long time Blackberry advocate, a PalmPilot professional and a Newton evangelist…all incredible mobile devices for their time but can’t compare to the impact of the iPad)
My #1 app for iPad right now is IBM Lotus Traveler. (note: I’m a little biased). My team in IBM has a variety of devices ranging from iPhones, iPads, android devices in addition to our “traditional” Blackberry devices. All of us have mail, contact, and calendar capabilities integrated into the mobile device experience itself.
These functions are fundamental for mobile devices to be effective in the business world and Traveler provides a solid and secure foundation for organizations looking toward a BYOD strategy.
