iPad Is A Hit In German Parliament

iPads in use in the Bundestag

Politicians in Germany are using iPads en masse in the Bundestag, the German parliament chamber.

According to the English translation of this Spiegel article, the iPad is a reasonable expense claim for the politicians, so ownership has spread like wildfire through the chamber.

Although a popular tool for research and answering email, one member has been caught out playing chess during a meeting.

There’s a photo gallery of smiling German politicians and their iPads here, if that’s your sort of thing.
