Enterprise tablet deployments will grow four-fold in 2013..

There will be a four-fold increase in CIOs looking at “broad” tablet deployments in 2013, says Piper Jaffray

An increasing number of chief information officers (CIOs) will tackle tablet deployments in enterprise this year, says Paper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, with Apple’s iPad still the preferred tablet on the market.

In a note to investors (which was first reported by AppleInsider), Munster said that his firm had surveyed 59 CIOs from 12 different industries recently and discovered that tablet deployments in enterprise are to surge in 2013.
