NO RATINGS
I agree with you Alex. I think what I meant by my statement was that right now we've seen some real skepticism from the Design News audience, in particular, around how to put mobile design tools to work.  And in many ways, that skepticism is well founded given that we're just starting to see the first blush of what's possible with tablets and apps. That said, I think this is going to be a huge hot button this year and by end of year 2012, many of those skeptics will see a very different picture about what's possible. All you have to do is look at the consumer market to get a sense for how quickly technology advances.

Door knocking

NO RATINGS
I would say that, contrary to your lead, engineers in 2012 WILL start knocking on the door demanding mobile CAD apps. There's no better way to take drawings out into the field, both to meetings and to actually job sites. So I think it's more a chicken-and-egg case of getting enough tablets into the hands of CAD users so that we see a measurable groundswell of mobile app uptake. I think that'll happen this year.
