GovBytes: Tablet use for government work expected to dramatically increase by 2013

Estimates in a new report by federal IT professionals are that tablet use for government work will almost triple by 2013. That would be an increase from 7% of federal workers using tablets for work to 19%. The report claims that the increased use of tablets could add $2.6 billion worth of labor hours in productivity. Also, use of smartphones for federal work is projected to rise from 35% to 43%. These numbers imply that the government will have to supply 533,000 tablets and 355,000 smartphones to federal workers. Findings in the report state:

“If the addition of smartphones enables federal workers to be even 10 percent more productive, the federal government could add $2.6 billion in federal productivity by 2013,”
