BlackBerry has the largest piece of the enterprise, but Apple’s iPhone has gobbled up the majority of what’s left, according to a new report from Good Technology.
Good Technology, provider of multiplatform enterprise mobility solutions, released its first quarterly data report detailing how the rapid adoption of Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android devices is changing enterprise mobility. The report, which is based on data aggregated from thousands of Good’s enterprise customers, doesn’t include BlackBerry because most of its customers run off the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
The report shows that in less than two months from its late June launch, the Apple iPhone 4 became the most frequently activated device among Good’s enterprise customers. The Apple iPad leaped into the top five very quickly as well. Android continued to grow rapidly as more new devices come to market, with the Droid X by Motorola ranked as the most frequently activated Android device in September.
Apple iOS devices represented more than 50 percent of net new activations from June through September, 2010, while Android devices represented nearly 30 percent of net new activations over that period. Windows Mobile devices represented 15 percent of net new activations over that period. Symbian activations accounted for less than 5 percent.
The iPad showed adoption and activation growth with Good’s enterprise customers, entering the “Top 5” in less than two months. Interestingly, 70 percent of these iPad users have not activated any other devices with Good, while 30 percent have
activated both an iPad and least one other iOS or Android device.
