Not one of the any of the ones which are our primary ones anyhow that's for sure. Oh forgot, they decided to give the majority of UK stock to DSG didn't they and now they are wondering why no one else could sell them. Strange that!
As for discussions with our businesses customers about what kit they need it's simple. Tablets (no matter Windows, iOS or Android) are a complete and utter waste of time to someone spending all day banging in accounts into Sage or using Word all day. These clients only buy machines now when they die, or they expand staff levels (still not very common at the moment) which is why nothing much desktop/laptop wise is selling. These customers have a 8+ year old C2D desktop which is good enough, fast enough, and ideal for someone to spend all day using for general office tasks. They simply don't need new hardware and that is the battle we have to overcome. Currently the only tablets selling to the majority of businesses are for the marketing and sales droids so they can dangle something fancy in front of the customer to try to impress them, or management who want something as they've heard they need one to look fancy while sitting in the airport.
As mentioned in the article. Yes Barclays bought a shedload of iPads. And they are going to be used by whom? Yep, sales droids selling stuff pottering around in front of customers. Are they going to sitting there typing letters on them all day? The RSI lot will have a field day :P
The majority of businesses are still a sit down in an office environment doing lots of mundane grunt work. Tablets, touch screens, gestures and all that are utterly useless. A good sized monitor and a full size keyboard and mouse are the perfect tool in this environment. The snag is that nothing is needing the power of a modern system in this environment. Why does the secretarial pool, or accounts need a bunch of i7's? Simply they don't, thus they aren't selling. As soon as the manufacturers stop listening to ANALysts and actually listen to the customers the better and quiet possibly they could get some sales going to them.
