    One-quarter of employees choose Apple's iPad, while only 1 percent select BlackBerry PlayBook

    Close to one-third of information workers said they would prefer to use a Windows-based operating system for their next tablet, well above the 26 percent who chose iOS, according to a survey of 9,766 information workers by Forrester Research.

    A full 20 percent of information workers said they prefer Windows 8, while another 12 percent said they prefer Windows 7 or other Windows OSs. Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android OS garnered 11 percent support, while Research in Motion's (NASDAQ: RIMM) BlackBerry PlayBook was only preferred by 1 percent of employees, a reflection of BlackBerry's dramatic decline in the enterprise marketplace.

    This is a surprising result, given that the BYOD phenomenon has been fueled primarily by employees bringing their the iPhones and iPads to work. Windows currently has only a 2.4 percent share of the mobile OS market, according to the latest Gartner stats .
