Apple and Microsoft have gone head to head in the tablet market this month with the launch of the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4. V3 readers were keen to find out which of the touted laptop replacements is best for business, and whether a larger tablet can really replace a desktop or laptop.
We also got our hands on BlackBerry's latest attempt to get a foothold back in the smartphone market, and were impressed with the Priv.
V3 was also in Barcelona last week attending the Gartner CIO summit, where we heard from the Ministry of Defence's CIO on how the department is looking to be more agile with its IT service delivery. Mark Daniels, head of IT at MTR Crossrail, also explained how the organisation is using iPads, iPhones and Bluetooth beacons to help connect staff at the network.
