Why tablet marketing is totally different than mobile marketing

May 23, 2013

The primary reason marketers need to consider a specific tablet strategy is that smartphones are far more mobile, can’t-leave-home-without-it, devices. Tablets? Actually, almost the reverse; they’re far more commonly used in the home by consumers.

“Tablet marketing enables marketers to engage with influential customers who spend less time on PCs and print media,” says Forrester analyst Thomas Husson, who recently blogged about research he did over the past few months on the topic. “People use tablets differently from smartphones, requiring marketers to adapt their approach.”

Husson says marketers will see better payback if they [...]

The one thing you can do to ensure your mobile app fails

May 2, 2013

That’s all well and good, but Katz, who heads the mobility engineering group at Sanofi-Aventis, said too often he sees development that leaves user needs out of the equation.

“App development is like trying to get a horse out of the mud. A lot of times developers take the same approach they do for the desktop and you end up with what I call a crapplication,” Katz said at the Tablet Strategy conference earlier this week.

“If you build a crapplication they will run,” joked Katz, noting users will either [...]

BlackBerry CEO finally clarifies tablet strategy – there is none

May 2, 2013

So what to make of BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins who appears to have done a decent job of righting the sinking BlackBerry ship, but has a curious take on the future of mobility.


If you missed it, Heins predicted earlier this week that the market for tablets is headed for a fall:

“In five years, I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore,” Heins said at a conference covered by Bloomberg. “Maybe a big screen in your workspace, but not a tablet as such. Tablets themselves are [...]

American Airlines flies high with two tablet industry firsts

April 30, 2013

American’s well-publicized replacement of bulky kit bags that include flight manuals for pilots using iPads will become available to all of the airline’s 8,600 pilots by the end of May. 

The iPad replaces 40 pound kit bags with over 3,000 pages that include terminal charts and flight manuals that can now be updated digitally. It’s little surprise then that the change is being welcomed on all sides.

“We’ve reduced the single biggest source of pilot injuries, carrying those packs,” said Patrick O’Keeffe, VP of Airline Operations Technology at American during his Tablet Strategy keynote. “And we are now able to save $1 [...]
