There are few things that are more exciting for tech nuts then Apple announcement time. Couple that with Microsoft launching Windows 8 on October 26 and Google unveiling the Nexus 4 phone, Nexus 10 tablet and Android 4.2 on October 29, and the technology blogosphere is rampant with rumors about what consumers can look forward to.
On the Apple front, everything is purely speculation. All that is know at this point is that the company wants to show consumers a “little more.” Many are assuming its the unveiling of the 7-inch iPad Mini. According to the latest report from Bloomberg Businessweek, the company is gearing up for a marketing push toward education.
“We’re moving away from desktops and laptops,” James Ponce, the superintendent of the McAllen Independent School District in Texas, told Bloomberg. “Ninety percent of the work is now being done on mobile devices.”
It was announced on Monday that Windows 8 will have a complete integration with the VoIP solution Skype. The program will be completely overhauled to take advantage of the new start menu and touch screen.
It is easy to see why these solutions are becoming popular for businesses and consumers alike. According to a report from Mac Observer, 94 percent of Fortune 500 companies are either testing ot have deployed iPads into their business. On top of that, 70 percent of global 500 organizations are also looking into tablet devices.
