"While much has been said about the iPad's specs and multimedia
functionality, analysts say the large screen and enterprise apps
that it runs make it a good fit for certain businesses, though like
the first iterations of the iPhone, there are mobile security and
management challenges for IT.
""The iPad is clearly aimed at consumers, but Apple isn't
completely ignoring the enterprise: e-mail, calendar and contacts
are all built-in. Apple also rebuilt the iWork suite for the iPad,
and then priced these relatively full function Office applications
using the iPhone app pricing model -- just $10 each."
