Apple is dominating a surge in corporate tablet adoption, according to a survey conducted by research firm ChangeWave, with 22 percent of respondents planning to purchase tablets for their employees in the second quarter of 2012. The vast majority of those purchases are planned to be iPads, meaning that Apple is set for a bigger footprint in the enterprise space.
The survey, which sampled 1,604 business IT buyers, shows that among the greater than one-in-five companies who plan to acquire tablets next quarter, Apple’s iPad is the clear choice with 84 percent of respondents claiming that they’ll choose the Cupertino-based firm’s product over everything else. While Apple has historically held a strong lead in this category dating back to late 2010, this quarter’s 84 percent rating represents a seven point gain over last quarter and is the highest ever recorded by ChangeWave.
