According to a survey run by IDG recently, iPad use by professionals in the work place is at a very high level. This phenomena is not just a U.S. trend, it is a major global trend. The lowest rate of usage of the iPad for communications is in Europe where only 80% of professionals use it. However, in the US, this rate is 93% and in Asia and the middle east, that number reaches more than 97%.
According to one section of the study, newspapers definitely have a lot to worry about as more than 72 percent of US iPad using professionals are purchasing fewer newpapers, while in Europe that number is only 63 percent.
