Apple's iOS holds strong as Android's enterprise presence surges - Page 2

Let's see these stats but only including companies who have ATT as their provider.

Yet another reason Apple needs to get a CDMA phone on the streets.

From what I hear, most corporate accounts (even BlackBerry ones) are on AT&T. Perhaps this is why the BlackBerry Torch got the AT&T-exclusive launch. Hence iPhone is on the right network if it wants mass enterprise support.

It's not that CDMA is dead. It's just that CDMA doesn't officially exist to many companies.

Yes I noticed that to. The percentage market share in the bar chart for Aug 2010 add up to 128%. Unless I am missing something this survey is completely useless.

I have a friend who is a Research Associate for Pacific-Crest, an investment bank in Portland, OR. They cover RIM and he said in a conference call with RIM's CEO, the CEO sounded very defensive when asked about their plans for the consumer market.

RIM is dying, simple as that. RIM's style was effective when the only people who had smartphones were business professionals. Blackberry phones simply aren't consumer-oriented phones. Frankly, I don't know very many people who actually like their BlackBerry. I bet that a lot of them use it because their employer gives them that phone.

It's sad to think that BlackBerry as a company is like that. From what I read (I don't own any smartphone), BBM is the best way to text message and communicate with other people, if you're into texting, like teens and young adults are. If they intentionally marketed BB and BBM to teens, then they'd have a real shot in the consumer market.

Is it right to assume that someone who posts like a child is, in actual fact, a man?

Here Newtron, I'll save you the trouble .... (Newbee .. <plonk>)
