Tablets are increasingly becoming a staple at work for the corporate professional, according to research released in June 2012 by IDG Connect. 71% of the more than 3,000 IT and business professionals responding to the survey said they already own a tablet, with roughly 3 in 5 using it daily for work. Breaking down usage by OEM, the survey finds that daily usage is highest among Blackberry tablet owners (71%), followed by iPad (64%) and Android (58%) owners. Overall, just 8% of tablet-owners say that their device never makes it into their work.

These companies tend to be large, with 81% of them having more than 2,000 employees. Read the rest at MarketingCharts.
