In the Technology segment  on today’s Down To Business with Bobby Kerr on Newstalk, we’re looking at BYOD and the SME.  Ben Cranks from HP will be with us to talk about the HP ElitePad 900, an ideal BYOD device and we’ll also be joined by Mike Hughes from Microsoft to discuss how BYOD employees get the most from mobility?

What are the big trends for technology in the next couple of years, and how are they relevant to SMEs? In our Technology Segment on today’s Down To Business with Bobby Kerr I’m genuinely delighted that we’ll be joined by Charles Arthur, Technology Editor of The Guardian. In Charles’ Book, Digital Wars he looks at the digital battle between Apple, Google and Microsoft and details what to expect from the internet in the next five years and the implications for us all as technology users. So we’ll be asking Charles about a few technology trends that have caught our eye:
