re: Regulating The Dark(er) Side Of Consumerization
I would expect that given all of the various tablet and OS makers trying to carve into a slice of this market, one vendor would realize that consumers aren't the only target market (even if it's largest), and design a device aimed at enterprises with these built in controls, or yes virtualization.
Manufacturers have already gotten the users familiar with the form factor, touch UI, and model of deployment. Now if they provide devices able to be locked down systemically, not just per app, then there's a use for that in my business: provided for workers - to work with.
I'm not so interested in allowing a user to bring in his shiny toy. Use your toys outside of work during playtime. At my work, we use tools, and we buy what's needed for our employees. I'm more interested in a (rugged) tablet device that I can deploy at a design office/manufacturing environment that does not leave the facility. If it has location controls baked in, instead of freeing it if it leaves, I can automatically brick it until it returns (displaying "Please return this device to Company Name, Address" - reward optional).
Not that a market leader has to actually *lead*, but I'd be impressed if Apple produced an iPad Pro, intended for at-work productivity and mobility within a building, not necessarily mobility throughout the rest of a user's world. I'm not so concerned with completist fanbois complaining about a product not intended to suit their individual needs. That's why it'd be a separate product. I could see Lenovo (or used to consider HP) differentiating itself for business purposes this way before Apple would change its paradigm. The first OEM to accomplish this well will take a considerable lead in creating a new niche market.
I'm certain that the device I'm thinking of would have similar enterprise applications in executive offices, facility management, intra-office communication (mail room), quality control, inventory management, and even security or loss prevention. I can already imagine Pro apps designed to facilitate these common specialized tasks, such as a GPS-type or enhanced reality routing for the mail boy to make his rounds similar to UPS's truck-based GPS solution.
Next step: replace us all with robots. Just kidding.
