  • We need to test on many various devices, and it would be too much for work to provide them all, so we use our own.

  • We were all given tablets early last year (Samsung Galaxy 10.1 I think?) and they’re set up for us to remote into our desktops, as well as check email through the email app, and so on. I pretty much use mine to play Candy Crush and use Skype (I have a Chromebook and Skype is the one thing missing)… there’s nothing that my job entails that I can do on a tablet that I can’t do on my laptop, and I don’t take my tablet anywhere that I don’t take my phone… so it’s this weird in between device.

  • I take my Nexus 7 everywhere with me and use it for many different purposes, including at work. I use it for note-taking, email, remote logon to XenApp, amongst other things.

  • What do you mean by tablet for the purposes of this article? All slate form factor devices, or just ones that require downloaded apps?
