Huge Android Fan - XOOM Tablet

Aaron Jones's picture

I think the XOOM tablet is fantastic. I know it is dated and with new offerings like the Nexus 7 available, it can appear a little... antiquated. However, I really do recommend a tablet to any one who conducts business or spends time in the field instead of an office. A sturdy bag and a tablet can increase productivity and I constantly get compliments from clients when we sit down and I demonstrate web technology on my tablet.

You can't go wrong with the sheer geek-chic that comes with a suit, tie, and an android tablet.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
