iPads at Lotusphere

Supporting evidence for my Lotusphere iPad thoughts from Twitter: “@stuartmcintyre: Just been told that the were 1600 iPads on the wifi at the #ls11 OGS. That is approx. 1 in 5 of the attendees – staggering!”

I spent some time in the Innovation lab and this morning found myself repeatedly seeing things that would help me to work on the road with the iPad and no laptop.

Then I was discussing with Collin Murray my impressions of the week, summed up as: Social Business + Mobile + Cloud are all disruptive and highly complementary.

“Timing is Everything” and the time is right for dramatic changes in our industry. The iPad finally convince me that maybe it is time to buy a MacBook as a cross-over personal/business device. This week made me wonder if I need a new laptop at all.

  1. I have been here all week without a laptop. Just an iPad. And I did not use the wi-fi. 3G was awesome and consistent everywhere.

  2. <html><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><div>I used<span class="Apple-style-span" style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.292969); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469); "> Wi-Fi only. It worked much better for me than prior years – and better than many other conferences. Also, I think the iPad copes better when Wi-Fi is a bit overloaded (compared to Windows).</span></div><div><br></div><div><span class="Apple-style-span" style="-webkit-tap-highlight-color: rgba(26, 26, 26, 0.296875); -webkit-composition-fill-color: rgba(175, 192, 227, 0.230469); -webkit-composition-frame-color: rgba(77, 128, 180, 0.230469); font-size: 15px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: 18px; "></span></div></body></html>

  3. I switched back and forth between my Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPad. It was great that Lotusphere had a native app for both devices where I could view and sync my conference schedule in addition to Lotusphere online
