Apple & iPad get serious about small business with new Joint Venture!

This just hit my email inbox. Coming off of the iPad2 announcement yesterday it was interesting to see this email from Apple. Apple is introducing “Joint Venture”, which apparently is a new program geared to small business owners to help them with Apple products ranging from their Mac to iPhone, and iPad. This is a smart move from Apple as we all have witnessed the growth of entrepreneurship and small business, especially in these economic times. The email from Apple also states “we’ll set up your new Apple products, train your employees, and give you priority support. And you’ll have the full support of our Business Team”.

What are your thoughts on this? Will this help more small businesses purchase Apple products?
