Since April 2010, the iPad has become a phenomena that has filled many homes, but has had another big impact in the working world. The iPad mini is even better suited for the working world as the price and form factor fit so much better in a number of areas. Whether it’s retail, schools, hospitals, or display units in a variety of industries the iPad mini fits even better, and may be the main purpose of the 7.9” iOS device.
Think of a retailer where employees could hold iPads all day to perform transactions or show off items. Then there are schools where kids are better suited for a smaller iPad, and school budgets are better suited for smaller prices. Hospitals can also greatly benefit with doctors and nurses visiting patients and showing medical records on a smaller iPad which is much easier to carry around all day. iPads have also been seen in restaurants, at conferences, store kiosks, in hotels, and other places where they’re interactive display units for these places to provide information to customers.
In all of these instances, a smaller cheaper iPad fits what they’re trying to do perfectly. The iPad mini will likely sell to a bunch of individuals, but it’s role is likely to be even greater felt in the working world. The iPad mini can be a cog to fit in so many different mechanics, and it’s value can actually make interacting with the working world that much easier.
