As Apple gets set to launch the iPad 3, the study by The Business Journal’s parent company found that use of the tablet has jumped from 9 percent in 2010 to 34 percent in 2011, indicating that the iPad is the fastest growing technology among the SMB market.
About 75 percent of small business owners report said they are “very or somewhat familiar” with the device.
Godfrey Phillips, vice president of research at The Business Journals, said the growth of the iPad is part of a trend. “Our research has shown that for small business owners, productivity and efficiency, which used to be the central benefits of technology, are now declining in importance compared to accessibility.”
