For the government worker on the go, a tablet can be very useful as long as it doesn’t become a distraction at work. No Angry Birds during your 9-5! Also, unless the government agency has standard issued phones, the workers should have a choice of tablet around the same price range, as long as it also has strong security. I have an Android phone, and I’d rather have an Android tablet because its easier to sync to my phone, though Android may not have the required security. It would have been an easy choice in the days that Blackberry’s ruled the world, the Playbook would be standard.
