Submission + - Tablets a fad and deskphones to disappear within five years, say UK CIOs (computerworlduk.com)

Qedward writes: Still using a deskphone?

UK CIOs expect the deskphone to disappear from offices within five years, and the future use of tablets doesn't seem that secure either.

Following a survey of 500 UK CIOs about the technology they expected to be using over the next few years, 65% predicted deskphones would disappear from everyday use within five years.

The survey also revealed CIO skepticism about tablet technology such as Apple's iPad, with nearly a quarter (24%) of CIOs surveyed expecting tablets to "fall out of fashion".
