I can see the previous company I worked for going for it in a big way too. They have a lot of field staff who have lots of data to capture.
All the security fixes and no I don't want to install a custom ROM where half the hardware doesn't work. I did look into that believe me. Stupid fanbois. The state of Android updating is crap and pretending it isn't or telling me to install some random piece of software doesn't absolve the world's largest smartphone manufacturer from its incredibly poor record.
How long did it take to get KitKat to the Note 2? An eternity and it's not even the latest version. The last thing I want is that same disinterest in customer service being applied to my network equipment.

People buy Chinese because either they can't afford more expensive items (and this is a vicious circle as more people see their living standards go down due to outsourcing) or because there's no alternative because most corps have outsourced to make a few people richer without actually reducing prices that much.
People like you fail to realise that a society built on consumerism will collapse without consumers. The success of businesses in the developed world is largely due to such evil lefty ideas such as leisure time and disposable income. Good luck replacing free spending US citizens with Indians on low pay with no free time.

No they just have to clean up various bodily fluids and watch people suffer and die. Nurses deserve to be treated well.
Only in the consumer world. In the far more lucrative corporate world no-one's going to be writing 500 page documents or huge spreadsheets on an iPad.
