This. I own nothing but Android devices, but when our company wanted to provide devices for the sales group, I pushed them towards the Apple devices. We have 100 of them in the field used for various dog-and-pony shows, and they are very easy to streamline and homogenize. Not to mention these people are suckers for brand names. The company is looking to upgrade our current stock to iP5 so I'm hoping that the process remains seamless.
