iPad or Playbook?

With a big head start in release dates, the iPad clearly has the lead over the Playbook. But does this mean it is the best choice for lawyers and legal firms? Which one will help your law practice? If looking around the office is any indication, the iPad is the winner. By the time the Playbook was released today the technology junkies had already bought their tablet and they are not going to purchase another one until there is a significant reason to do so. There are so many good applications available for the iPad that will help your practice. Apple's productivity suite ($), DropBox (free), LogMeIn Ignition ($) and a terrific new app, Moleskine (free). Given the head start in sales and the countless apps I think the iPad is the best choice.
