Field workers have never had more choice when it comes to devices enabling them to extend their enterprise to the front lines. In my role as a public safety technology specialist, I’m often tasked with making “fitness-of-purpose” recommendations. I develop confidence in equipment through real world testing beyond advertised operational parameters. My customers will use these devices so I’ve got to go there first.
To be honest, I was completely caught off guard when the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 was announced last month. But after touching and feeling the device, I completely understand why Microsoft wanted to improve upon a product that’s already been deemed a success.
