Tablet Mistakes in the Enterprise

wsj.gifThe Wall Street Journal has a great article today on "Here Come Tablets. Here Come Problems". They provide a rundown of the five largest mistakes companies are making…
  1. Failing to have a plan before rolling out the devices
  2. Not understanding what tablets are—and are not—good for
  3. Expecting to easily obtain all the apps you need
  4. Thinking tablets are cheaper than laptops
  5. Misjudging the ease of support and security
From a developer viewpoint, I am seeing the need for variants of the OS (iOS and Android) that provide more control over what’s installed and used on the devices. There’s a growing need to use these devices for captive or ‘kiosk’ type solutions that remove many of the facilities expected by typical non-business consumer.
