I come from Singapore but find myself now living and working in the Netherlands, specialising in SMS 2003 / Configmgr 2007. I enjoy working and connecting people with computers and I hope I can share as much information as I can here through this blog.
“Computers do not just work like that, at the press of a button. From the moment a computer is switched on in your office, magic happens. That’s why you need an IT department and they do more than crawling under your desk to plug in that wire you kicked out.”
I reckon it would be apt to briefly talk about this. From initial impressions, and taking into consideration the strengths of RIM, my two cents worth is that this is the first worthy competitor to the pad.
We are seeing a lot of shift in technology into these 'tablets' now ever since Apple sensationised the whole market. Not many may remember, but it was Bill Gates that first coined the term 'tablet pc' in the 1990s and also had an Microsoft XP Tablet Windows OS to show. Of course that's now part of history, and tablets have been rebranded and redesigned, courtesy of Apple. How does this relate to ConfigMgr then? I figure it will be worth noting to see how SCCM v.Next's Mobile Device Management may take more of the limelight if we see more and more businsses starting to use tablets running on Windows to replace laptops. Hang on, is a tablet a laptop, or a mobile device!? ;)
