    A few years ago, the CEOs of the financial sector were telling us that we were in a "Golden Age" that would never end.

    I guess you've forgotten how that turned out.

    I'm not sure I understand your point. Jimbo said it's impossible to use SAP applications on a tablet, I pointed out that the CEO of SAP is talking up their new tablet and phone based apps. You respond with this? What exactly is your point?

    CEO claims are just "vaporware" ...

    CEO claims are just "vaporware" until the actual product or service arrives and proves itself.
    Even if that product or service is deployed that doesn't mean it will be any good (e.g. New Coke).

    You're surprised that "the CEO of SAP is talking up their new tablet and phone based apps"?
    Someone who plans to make money off of some product or service, isn't likely to say, "don't buy this, it's complete garbage" (even if it actually is).

    jimbo45 may still get to have the last laugh.

    BTW, I have no interest in SAP one way or the other (Metro SAP may be a hit).

    Hi there
    the only way you could use SAP on a tablet is to have dedicated one off transactions (single transactions) such as entering a waybill number on a truck arriving at say a warehouse.

    You couldn't do ANY SAP development (ABAP / JAVA), Customisation or run any business modelling using a single full screen tablet type interface.

    I'd like to see someone debugging 7 sets of different areas of program code from say SAP modules on a tablet with only ONE window open at a time --especially if you need to compare how another version is running on a "PRODUCTION" system.

    Cheers
    jimbo
