I don't think corporates will be buying Raspberry Pis. As far as I can see, the idea is they plug their employee's existing company phone into this, and the phone gains a full-sized screen and keyboard.

The phone is already set up for secure access to corporate resources, so this means one less device to manage compared to giving the employee a full-blown laptop or chromebook.
