I never once made any comment for or against PGP encryption. Your started argument was clear (and misguided): If you can't figure that out then it must be secure. I merely pointed out that your logic is inherently flawed. If you can't see that then you're an enigma.

Eric just said they are.

Exactly.   This is a publicity attempt by a vendor for small or medium businesses that don't have their own Exchange Server.  

 

I create apps for a company that's well within the top twenty of the Fortune 500.  They're currently deploying tens of thousands of Android tablets to their workers.  Those Android tablets won't show up in this company's data, because the big boys DO have their own Exchange Servers.

 

Heck, if they also deployed a ton of iPads, they wouldn't show up either.

 

As a side note, it's not very wise of a company like this to reveal internal information about their customers' device usage.

You still trying with your lame attempts to discredit every single study done that gives the advantage to Apple or iOS? You tried with that study using data from Akamai which I totally discredited by pointing out that their analytics software is so lousy they can't even separate data by device type (so they had to "theorize" what effect iPads had on overall internet data).

While you can question a single study what do you do when multiple studies from different companies tracking different metrics all come up with similar numbers? Are you going to claim they are all faulty while touting your useless single study with flawed data performed by outdated analytics software as being correct? Seriously? That's your answer? Pathetic.

So first you're an expert on multi touch devices with "decades" of experience programming and now you're a developer writing Apps for a top 20 Fortune 500 company? You avoided my questions about which multitouch devices you've worked with, so I'll try again.

Which tablets are they deploying? Which version of Android are they using? What are you using to develop the Apps? What are the workers doing with their tablets that require specialized Apps? They obviously did some sort of study so what were the requirements that caused them to pick an inferior tablet/OS for Enterprise use?

Useless data since, as usual, Samsung doesn't break down those figures by device. A better number is the average selling price of a Samsung smartphone which verifies they sell a LOT of cheap phones for every GS3 or Note they sell.

As a developer I don't care about total sales - I care about sales of devices that are capable of properly running my App. I don't code for phones with 2.8" 240x320 screens running single core processors slower than an abacus.

No business wants Google to know what they're doing.
