Oh, it'll definitely change, for sure. You have lots of attention on it these days, because of the market saturation on the consumer side. It's just a bit slow, since there're so many moving parts, and they don't all reside in the control of the manufacturer. You've got to convince alot of people to buy into your perspective on how security should be implemented, what is sufficient, etc. It's highly debatable between the "commerce is king" types, and the "belts-'n-suspenders types." They each have legitimate concerns & points. IMO, at the end of the day if the belts 'n suspenders types can't get their concerns met, consumer-type tablets use will always be limited to the customer-side play--in other words, catering to those who don't really give a rat's ass how their info is managed, so long as they're productive. I've mostly been involved in the analysis with service providers--folks that run your communications services, and federal agencies...people who're responsible for alot of other people's important info. IMO, it's a good thing that they don't say "wtf, just slap a citrix client on there, and be done with it."
