Is the iPad useful for business? Is iPad2 worth the upgrade?

Yes and no.

This Observer article shows how useful the iPad has become for many people at work – How the iPad revolution has transformed working lives. The answer I give: I find myself using it far more than my laptop when out of the office, though I still need the laptop.

But the iPad 2 doesn’t offer much over the original iPad unless you’re a gamer or use video-chat. Apple got it pretty much right first time.
