Like its predecessor, the iPad 2 wasn't built specifically for enterprise customers. But that doesn't mean you won't find tablets in the office. Or in the operating room.
The health care industry in particular seems to have taken a liking to the iPad. Tablets are relatively easy to tote in and out of examination rooms. And the advent of electronic medical records means medical professionals have even more need for access to digital data on the go.
Even Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs, who is on indefinite medical leave, highlighted the healthcare industry's use of the iPad at the company's launch event earlier this week. A few minutes into his presentation, Jobs showed a video featuring a testimonial from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center CIO John Halamka, who claimed the iPad will "change the way doctors practice medicine."
