    There are other possibilities. Those 8% could have made a deal with Samsung or other company. Or they could have picked Android because they wanted to actually modify the OS in a way they can't with iOS. For example, some agencies picked Android for secure use - not because it's inherently secure, but because they can lock it down. These devices have virtually everything removed (like the Play Store) and severe restrictions placed on how it can work. So technically they run Android, but not anything resembling what you'd see running on your Samsung or HTC phone.

    I'd also like to see the enterprise activation statistics for Mac/Win PCs to get a grasp of the full enterprise picture. *conducts a search for this info*

    Id imagine it is more likely because of older IT staff which is carrying over a justified (at the time) hatred of Apple to today.

     

    I find it very hard to see how business could justify buying Android over iOS. Hecjk, Apple's consumer update policies are better than Android's enterprise ones. And seamless updates to the latest (or at least most secure) OS is pretty much THE most important thing for businesses.

    Yet they all continue to prefer Office. What a conundrum.

    Exactly what does this data mean - is it measuring the use of every iPad and tablet in the US or is it measuring the nature of devices making use of products purveyed by Good?

    It's whatever makes Apple seem worse in your eyes.

    The iPad is definitely becoming the new standard in enterprise! I remember a few month ago when my company decided to equip its employees with tablets. Everybody was talking about iPad since the first meeting, it was so obvious to everybody that it comes naturally, without any specific debates or decisions to choose whether an iPad or an another. In fact all the debates and discussions were about the application we should use for project management and collaborative work. We ended up with Beesy, which is a great app only available on iPad..

    I think this way of thinking is normal in the enterprise, somehow Apple manage to conquest the enterprise market and it won't change before a looong time in my opinion!
