The Tablet Tide Starts to Rise

Dan Jones

7:00 PM -- The tablet tide has been unleashed, so now what do we do with this new class of mobile device?

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) showed the way with the iPad, then Dell Technologies (Nasdaq: DELL) and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (Korea: SEC) got in on the game. Now, BlackBerry is coming onto the market with its PlayBook.

Video might be the key for both consumer and enterprise users. The slightly bigger screen makes the tablets more sensible for video consumption. The popularity of the Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) app on the iPad shows the appeal of video on the consumer side

If folks at the CTIA are right, then this will soon translate to the enterprise business. It's easy to see how engineers dealing with on-site issues would appreciate a mobile device that can send and receive high-quality video.
