The State of Tablet Adoption at Work is a new infographic from VentureBeat.com. It’s interesting that the infographic itself was sponsored by Lenovo and Qualcomm, but included as part of a VentureBeat article. You can find the original version here at TabletsAtWork.com
Since the debut of Apple’s iPad in Jan. 2010, the integration of tablet devices into our lives and work has progressed rapidly — so fast that it’s sometimes hard to put in perspective how quickly got here. The exclusively obtained infographic below breaks down how far workforce adoption of tablet technology has come — and where it’s headed. (The graphic was sponsored by Lenovo and Qualcomm.)
I love the clean, professional design look. I really like the color scheme and the mixed bag of visualization styles; grid of icons, treemap, stacked bar, line chart, etc.
Only a couple of design issues about this one I would improve.
- I’m willing to let 16 tablet icons represent 16.1 Million tablets shipped in 2010 (rounding), but why only 144 tablets shown to represent 147.2 Million? That was just the designer wanting a clean, square visual that breaks the actual data visualization.
- The line chart showing 134% increase in shipments powered by Android and Windows is way out of scale. It’s visualizing something close to a 900% increase.
- At the bottom there should be a copyright statement and the URL to the original infographic landing page so people can find the full high-resolution version.
