Good Technology: iPad, iPhone dominating enterprise markets
While smartphone activations outnumber tablet new-installs by around three to one, Apple continues to dominate in the corporate tablet space, crushing all competition. ..... more than 80 percent of American employees continue business-related communication from their mobile devices after they have left the office. The amount of usage averages seven hours per week -- adding up to more than a month and a half of (typically unpaid) overtime per year. ...... top ten devices activated in the second quarter of 2012 are led by the iPhone 4S, followed by the iPad 3, iPhone 4, iPad 2, the Samsung Galaxy S II, Motorola Droid Razr, iPad, iPhone 3GS, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the Samsung Galaxy Note. ..... Windows Phone 7.5 accounted for 1.2 percent of the total smartphone activations, with Apple holding 70.8 percent and Android gaining ground to 28 percent...... The financial services industry leads mobile device activations .... the "bring your own device" movement in information technology.
Steve Jobs was all about the consumer space. But then there are unintended consequences. You build factories. You end up polluting rivers. Only I think the smartphone, tablet penetration of the enterprise is a good thing, though inevitable. It was only a matter of time.
