They could have wait for a Windows 8 tablets. Less expensive and more productivity software like Microsoft Office.

Well we cant blame them....they don't have enough knowledge to use an android or win 8 tab... so they stuck to the most easy one to use....lol!!

I totally agree! There needs to be a true element of productivity as well as security.
While the iPad has some very basic security, it's not a productivity tool! It's a consumption device!
Blackberry could have cornered this market years ago..

They haven't done anything productive in their lives.

You'd think they'd go for a device that isn't made by companies under investigation for human rights violations... Might as well wait for Windows 8

And here i thought that only brazilian politician had the nerve to ask to be bought with tax money tablets for their use. Guess politicians are greedy everywhere.

If i was a member I would choose windows 8 tablet over iPad. But their rich they can buy what they want. And they dont care for saving money.

Well here in India they gave IPads to politicians and they put it to good use by watching Porn while parliament was in session. :D
