WSJ: Apple Uses Partners for Enterprise iPads

According to the Wall Street Journal Apple is working with over 40 companies in an effort to turn the iPad into a more appealing enterprise tool as part of the Mobility Partner Program (MPP).

One part of effort involves smaller companies (named examples include accounting firm Xero, digital cash register company Revel Systems, and field-service software firm ServiceMax) training Apple business specialists. Other unnamed companies have even been invited to Apple sales conferences normally closed to non-Apple staff.

In addition the WSJ says Apple is pushing developers into creating a more cohesive ecosystem of interoperable iPad business apps based on feedback from the aforementioned partner companies.

New Google Glass Reaches Enterprise

According to the Wall Street Journal and 9to5Google Google quietly released a new version of the Google Glass wearable-- an "Enterprise Edition" (aka "EE") designed for, well, enterprise.

As the news sources put it, the updated Glass has a tougher design to withstand any drops and bumps met on the workplace. The prism display is larger and more adjustable and, depending on who you ask, the device features either a button-and-hinge system for attachment to different glasses or "robust" hinges allowing wearers to fold it like a regular pair of glasses.

9to5Google describes the device as being "better fit in a factory or a hospital than on a runway… with a focus on function over fashion."

Further details include updated internals, including an Intel Atom processor, "moderately improved" battery life, wireless connectivity improvements and better heat management.
