If they expanded the survey, they'd very likely find more people are using tablets for business, regardless of the model. I carry my 7" tablet to work every day, it's the perfect size for mobility while remaining capable for getting tasks done that would be more difficult on a phone.

Given the choice between carrying a tablet or laptop, tablet is going to win every time.

At y job , the drivers are starting to have us sign on Android tablets and they use them to take pictures of damaged products. Only 1 person has a iPod touch for a signature. Guess what size tablet these drivers have???? 7" , that's right, it fits into there jackets and sleve with there paperwork. Even if apple managed to get a 7" Ipad out on the market, they would have to match the price point of Android tablets. Companies don't care how great the screen is, as Long as there's a app for business purposes, they will go with a cheaper tablet.
