AT&T has just announced that the 3G version of the iPad has seen a 'surprising' amount of adoption by business clients. Electronista reports that many businesses are starting to see the iPad as a viable alternative to a notebook or netbook for travelers.

75% to 80% of iPad users opt in for the higher-end data plans. The $30 unlimited plan and the $25 2 GB plan both make much more sense for most people than the $15 250 GB plan. In addition to the 3G, the iPad's long battery life and use in formal presentations are given as major reasons for its enterprise popularity.

If Microsoft, HP & the other companies working on iPad competitors are smart, they'll continue to place a premium on battery life and ease/speed of use. All the features in the world won't make a slate sell if it has a 4 hour battery life and takes 2 minutes to boot up whenever you need it.
