I didn't see any forums for discussing CAD industry trends, so I'm posting here, where it's at least tangentially related.
I'm seeing an awful lot of announcements in the last few weeks about CAD and CAE apps on the iPad. Not on the cloud in a browser, but apps. Creo, Nastran, etc. Now, I haven't been following the tablet market very carfully, but is there a technical reason for the emphasis on the Apple products? Is it because it's easier to target Apple's hardware monoculture, is it because marketing perceives the iPad as cooler, is it a technical limitation of other mobile platforms?
