Default Dell exec slags off the iPad

At a conference in Australia, Dell Australia's MD Joe Kramer claimed Apple's iPad was "shiny" but not fit for business.

Kramer told delegates at the conference in Sydney that businesses were unable to afford to support the devices, adding: “If you are giving a presentation and something fails on the software side it might take four days to get it up and running again - I don’t think this race has been run yet”.

Dell's Streak 5 and 7 tablets, which were launched to much fanfare, mostly from Dell itself, didn't do quite as well as the company had anticipated, and ended up discontinued.

According to the Next Web, the company has its fingers in some Android and Windows 7 tablets, but Micheal Dell himself has admitted that he believes Android will never challenge Apple's dominance in the market.

Dell has announced that it will be giving the iPad a run for its money with a business-focused Windows 8 tablet, which launches later this year.

Although Kramer has a fair point about the iPad's usefulness, CEOs and executives love them. Arguably, Apple products have sparked the BYOD, security at an app level trend, where IT managers are having to find a way around security headaches by making sure the top brass can operate their toys without threatening enterprise infrastructure.
