The List of iPad Deployments by Enterprises, Schools is Up to 240

Summary: The list of iPad deployments in businesses and schools continues to grow - fast.

SHARE:

Great minds think alike (or is it No Good Idea is Original?): unbeknownst to me, while I was compiling my list of large-scale iPad deployments the last two months, someone else was, too. His name is Jim Siegl, and he is an educational technology consultant out of the Washington D.C. area.

It didn't take much persuasion for us to agree to combine our efforts into a single list in a Google Site built by Siegl. You can see our list here: http://ipadpilots.k12cloudlearning.com/

Our list, while large, is no doubt a fraction of the real total, considering the tablet market predictions for 2010 we're seeing (Morgan Stanley expects 15 million tablets sold this year, while Gartner sees 20 million).

Please help us by submitting news of large deployments of iPads, as well as Android tablets and other similar devices (smartphones, superphones, etc.) Those lists are also coming.

    Zzzzzz. Predictions are useless. From a quote: "There are lies, damn lies, and statistics." Statistics can be skewed any way you want it. From current actual sales [from Reg Hardware] Morgan Stanley's 15 million will be the more likely amount. Gartner is smoking on something. Even then, current netbook sales will top 40 million.

      @Gis Bun Re: your comment on the above Tablet market predictions post - I agree that the individual forecasts may not be super-accurate, but crowdsourcing them, we can find a meaningful, accurate center. I feel pretty good that about 14 million tablets will ship this year, it being the mean of tablet market this year will end up somewhere around 14 million units, it being the mean of 8 research firms.
