Nearly half of all iPad sales are to corporations and governments

The New York Times reports that nearly half of all iPad sales are to corporations and governments, with high-end iPad sales to business customers particularly strong. 

"Apple is stronger in the enterprise market with its devices than it is with consumers," Forrester analyst Frank Gillet told The Times.

The article adds that companies are turning to Apple’s products for their tight-knit hardware and software, advanced security features and intuitive interfaces. Aiding Apple’s corporate sales has been a concern that phones and tablets running Google’s Android software, which are generally cheaper and popular with consumers, have lagged in the security technology and the standardization that companies want.
