Another Apple article tellin' the same thing. Of course, demand for the new iPad is gonna be sky-high. No doubt about it. Afterall, it's a resolutionary product of the most "innovative" company!

I think the point was to show how lots of businesses are starting to attempt to increase productivity by purchasing and using tablets, which is really cool. I think this is what tablets are great for!

I really don't see why!
I have an iPad2. It's good device, but it's not a productivity tool!
Smart businesses will hold out for a 3G/4G capable Android Transformer or Windows 8 Transformer type devices.
It just makes more business sense to be able to connect a mouse/memory stick and have a decent keypad with a "tab" button for example.

Surprising that these companies would list the Samsung Android tabs as their preferred alternative to the iPad than an Asus Prime. Shows that the market's focus is overwhelmingly fixed on the iPad and is unaware of what the current superior Android tablet is.

84% of the 22% of the1600 of IT buyers that will streamline is not huge demand! There is huge demand for the iPad but this survey does not point to that demand.

That means 295 out of 352 companies are gonna get ipads!

Which is not a big amount when you look at 1600

Still huge demand, but I agree with pointing out the 84% or 22% fine print. By the title of this article, one might assume 84% of all business IT buyers are planning on buying the iPad, because that is exactly what the title says. In reality, only 22% of business IT buyers are planning on buying tablets, and 84% of those individuals are choosing the iPad.
In short, the number in the title should be less than 19%, at least if the goal were accuracy and not sensationalism.
