IBM Global Financing (IGF) plans to give UK businesses the option of leasing tablet PCs.

By offering low-interest financing on tablet PCs, IBM will enable clients to reduce up-front cash outlays and better match payments to benefits.

In a statement, IBM said: “Instead of buying a tablet at $599 (€416) and imaging it for another $200, companies can lease it for about $20 a month.  The requirement begins at US$1K in most geographies.”

With the PC market showing signs of having passed its peak, fast-growing consumer demand for tablet devices such as Apple’s iPad and BlackBerry’s Playbook tablet, has opened up a new IT market for asset finance companies.

Follow IBM’s announcement, other providers in this sector are also arguably well equipped to offer similar programmes.
