Your anti-Apple drivel passes no bounds!"Apple remain below the double digit mark"
Can't you read charts. In 2011 (i.e. last year) Apple's enterprise sales were $12 billion out of $84 billion i.e. more than 14%.
So where do you get "below double digit" from?
Oh, of course that same fantasy place of yours where Android are soon going to take 98% of the Smartphone market and Apple is doomed to disappear.
Of course you don't like surveys which disagree with your fantasy projections. Forrester, who used to be as anti-Apple as you (and forecast that total iPad consumer sales of less than a million a year, Remember?), and used to advise enterprises not to buy Apple, have been forced by market realities to do an about face and they are now projecting that Apple's enterprise market share will rise from 2.7% in 2008 to 29% in 2013.
SlapHappy, here's another couple of surveys you won't like:
