Is there a future Pro Apple iPad?

Pro Microsoft Surface is apparently just what companies want in what was once known as the desktop. If this is the case, brain trust Apple may want to revisit the area where the Mac and iPad intersect.

According to Forrester Research's annual survey of nearly 10,000 people worldwide who use computers to do their work one hour or more per day, 32 percent said they would prefer Windows over Apple or Android tablet for their work following. Currently, about 2 percent use a tablet for their Windows work.Forrester predicts that Apple will continue to be a manufacturer of smartphone of choice for business users, but the research firm expects that 200 million workers will queue for a Windows tablet, such as the surface Pro. It could be that professional users just want their Microsoft Office and other Windows features on a shelf. Yet 26 percent of respondents preferred an iPad against 32 per cent the who wanted a tablet Windows.

Despite what Forrester describes the Apple iPad that take the business by storm.

"With more than 120 million iPads sold, it is clear that customers around the world love their iPads, and every day they are the biggest reasons for work, learning and play on their iPads rather than their old PC" Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of global marketing, said in a press release introducing the new iPad 128GB. "With twice the storage capacity and an unparalleled choice of more than 300,000 native iPad apps, businesses, educators and artists have even more reason to use the iPad for all their business and personal needs." Mac laptops are 80 percent of all Mac sales, but the iPad is by far the leader of the pack.

Schiller added that "almost all of the Fortune 500 and more than 85 percent of the Global 500 [are] currently deploying or testing iPad" for applications such as editing, composing music, videos of training, architectural projects and medical diagnostics.

iPad apps are generally disposable. For example, professional sports teams buy iPads to run applications such as GamePlan, which replace paper playbooks, movies, game schedules and guidelines for players and coaches. The app is not part of a more complex workflow involving several applications. The reality is that people like the iPad or tablets in general only, and this contributes to a post-PC wave is eclipsing PC sales. "Post-PC" as Steve Jobs said, means devices that are easier to use and more intuitive than a PC. But the new 128 GB, $ 799 Wi-Fi only iPad in the post- PCness not satisfy users who want multitasking, multiuser access and other features "PC".

This is the difference between what you can do with Mac OS and Apple iOS mobile devices. Some users will want the best of both, and that is what Microsoft is trying to do with Windows 8 and Pro hybrid surface.

Apple CEO Tim Cook described the area as "pretty compromised Product confused," and compared it to design a car that flies and floats. "I do not think it would do all these things very well," he said.

The sum of 999, the battery life private surface PC-laptop-tablet could be a slow start, but as ZDNet, Ed Bott wrote in his evaluation of the machine, "it is a great product for those who have already engaged in a Microsoft-centric work environment. It is not likely to inspire many iPad owners to pass, unless they are Apple tablets in the hands of someone who has been eagerly an excuse to run the iTunes ecosystem. '

Jean-Louis Gassée, former head of Apple, Inc. founder of Be and venture capitalist, says Apple "pro" problem in attempting to use an iPad to write his recent column Monday Notes:

    Once I started writing, I want to look through the research material I have compiled. On a Mac, I just open a window of Evernote, side-by-side with my Pages document: select, drag and drop. I take some screenshots partial annotate graphs (such as the iPad Pro price above), convert image format. Png used to put the note Monday on the Web .... On the iPad, these tasks are complex and cumbersome.

    To begin with - and berate the obvious - I can not open multiple windows. iOS uses the "one thing at a time" model. I can not select / drag / drop, I have to go to Pages to Evernote or Safari, select and copy a quote, then return to the document and paste .... Adding a hyperlink is more tortuous and at times confused .... and things get worse for graphics.

Gassée speculates Apple might want to expand iPad "territory authentically Pro." He concluded: "The more complex the task, the more our beloved 30 years, the personal computer is up. Room But it is now above the forced simplicity that made the success of the iPad to change user interface allowing a minimum real world "Pro" workflow on the iPad. "

If the surface becomes more successful Pro as it evolves, Cook and Jony Ive lead designer must consider the design of an iPad without compromise that can fly and float or fly and drive, and do both very fine.
