As HP (HPQ), Microsoft (MSFT), and RIM (RIMM) dream of enterprise tablet dominance, Apple (AAPL) may have already beaten them to the punch. Mobile device management firm Good Technology says over 25% of activated devices in Q2 were iPads. During its FQ3 CC, Apple said 86% of Fortune 500 companies are testing or deploying the iPad.

    Maybe because it's not necessary?

     

    Apple has applied for certification for both the iPhone and the iPad, launched a year before RIM's PlayBook. Even so, the iPad is already seen in the hands of many bureaucrats.

     

    "Each agency gets to decide, depending on the level of security they need, what products and processes can be used, and therefore what products they can purchase," said Evelyn Brown, spokeswoman for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which validates the standard.

     

    She said Apple and Android-based devices are already used in some federal agencies for simple tasks where security is not a concern.
