Mobility From A To Z


'Consumerization'

The lines between a consumer's mobile device and a workplace mobile device have been more than blurred. Microsoft takes shots at Apple and Android mobile operating systems for serving the sole purpose of "consuming content" rather than "producing content." However, Apple's addition of its iWork and iPlay suite to all new iOS 7 or Mavericks device, as well as manufacturers like Lenovo and Samsung creating Android devices with attached keyboards and styluses, challenges that notion. Lenovo Channel Chief, Chris Frey (pictured) told CRN that the company is taking strides to offer consumer products, starting with the Yoga 10 tablet, through the commercial channel to capitalize on the trend that end users really want one device for work and play.
