Barclays Bank in the U.K. has reportedly purchased at least 8,500 Apple iPads in one go, according to The Channel. The buy was made via Insight UK and is thought to be one of the largest iPad deployments in the U.K.

A press representative told the site that staff had demanded the iPad over the other tablet options.

The device will be used "to assist our branch colleagues to interact with customers, improving the customer experience".

"We investigated a number of different tablet options and in this instance, we concluded that iPads were the best solution for their specific needs. We are now starting to use these across Barclays branches in the UK," said the representative.

Barclays customer service reps are really greedy and rude . I get late fee charged to my account 3 times in 3 consecutive months (3*35=$105$ ) because i was late for just one day each month , i called them to ask if they can cancel at least one of the late fees as courtesy, but they refused to do that and when i told them i want to close my account they told me they be glad to help me for that !!! So i close my $1300 line of credit with them.

Wonder how many staff get them? They want to get the staff to interact with the customers at the counters, than play on bloody iPads. Speed up the time we have to stand in line. Cut down cost of bank letters.
