Tablets are taking over the business world as the device of choice to keep employees connected and on task.

The reason for this monumental shift from personal computers in the workplace to tablets is based on efficiency and production.

Tablets are perfect for keeping up with all business tasks and activities because of their mobility and high functionality.

A tablet is basically the perfect mix between a smartphone and a laptop. Small and light enough that it is easy to transport, yet large enough to be able to easily read and respond to work emails in an efficient manner.

For businesses looking to make the switch to tablets for employees, or are just looking for different options for tablet products and services, MegaCell TELUS is a fantastic solution.

Apple Tablets

Apple has been the market leader in tablet popularity since it released its first iPad in 2010. Although it was Microsoft that technically released the first ever tablet in 2001, it was not successful at all. It wouldn’t be until the release of the first iPad 9 years later when tablets really started to take off.

Some of the Apple tablets to choose from at MegaCell TELUS are:

  • Apple iPad Pro 10.5
  • Apple iPad Pro 12.9
  • Apple iPad 6th Generation


Apple iPad Pro 10.5

The iPad Pro 10.5 is a popular device in the iPad Pro series.

Some of the features the iPad Pro 10.5 has to offer are:

  • 5-inch screen
  • Apple pencil (second generation)
  • Smart keyboard Folio – full size detachable keyboard
  • Two viewing angles for multiple looks
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Thin and lightweight
  • Smaller speakers – better sound
  • Face ID security
  • True depth camera

Apple iPad Pro 12.9

The 12.9 version of the iPad Pro shares a lot of common specs with the 10.5 version. In fact, the only real differences between these two devices are size and weight.

The iPad Pro 12.9 has a much larger screen than the 10.5, making it about 75% bigger when measured in cubic centimetres.

This larger screen size also makes is significantly heavier which may be a drawback if you are focusing on versatility.

Apple iPad 6th Generation

The 6th generation iPad was released after the two iPad Pro versions (10.5 and 12.9),and has some considerable differences while offering similar features as well.

The main difference between the 6th generation iPad and the iPad Pro versions is the cost.

Apple hasdropped the price of the 6th generation iPad, making it more affordable. These are some of the changes that made the lower price possible:

  • Smaller scree size (9.7-inch screen)
  • No laminated display
  • Less power
  • Same battery as the 10.5
  • Less storage space and options for extra storage
  • Lower quality camera
  • More affordable

The 6th generation iPad may have downgraded some functionality, but the price is adjusted to reflect that.

Benefits of Business Tablets

There are all kinds of compelling reasons to make the switch to tablets for your business.

Some of the best advantages are:

  • Portability
  • Productivity
  • Affordability


Tablets are highly portable which helps business owners and employees in many ways. Employees can easily stay connected to each other and clients from the office, at home, or in transit.

The benefit of portability means staff is more likely to get more work done after leaving the office.


Staying connected means easily keeping up with work emails and notifications from wherever you are. It makes it easier to prepare for meetings while you are on your way there.

Collaborating with colleagues on group projects has never been simpler.


Providing employees with personal tablets is much cheaper that providing laptops or desktops for each person.

Not only is the purchase price cheaper, but so are maintenance and repairs.
