    As long as Android doesn't lend any money to Lindsay Lohan it will be doing all right.

    You really think Google is going to dedicate their time to cracking 2048 bit encryption when every single message has been encrypted?

    Yes. They have the servers to do it, the time to do it, and the business model that demands it.

    Wow, and yet Windows devices are down to 2.6% for phones and 2.1% for tablets?


     


    Ouch.



    2.6% for phones is an ouch.


     


    2.1% for tablets is a mystery.

    Off brand tablets gather dust, as shown by both web search and web purchase metrics (provided by IBM and others).


     


    Samsung is competing with the iP5 using the "give it away" model.  Businesses are more keenly interested in trouble-free integration.  This is vastly more economical in both the short and long run.


     


    The press has been very vocal of late regarding Samsung's increasing share, but ignoring the fact that the vast, vast preponderance of apps, app developer revenue and innovation are iOS phenomena.

    You know you can't use "premium" and "Android" in the same article.  That alone dismisses Android.

    What's really funny is that Fandroids don't say anything when Microsoft fans to come to these forums and sling Windows' enterprise marketshare around.
    But as soon as Apple has some favorable enterprise share numbers, the Fandroids come out of the woodwork dismissing enterprise as "not overall marketshare." Of course, if Google posted strong enterprise adoption numbers, they would exalt it.

    Then apparently you don't have much knowledge of how hard it would be to break. You should read a little.


    Google, much less the NSA does not have the resources to be cracking each and every email encrypted.

    I also can't believe no Android tablets were even mentioned. I guess the overhyped Kindle HD doesn't get any respect. ;-)

    This news doesn't surprise me because Apple iOS devices have good (no pun) MDM solutions available allowing businesses to easily manage their devices.


     


    Several hundred thousands large corporations structure themselves for tax purposes as either small or medium businesses. There will quite a few large corporations in this survey set.

    In fact, what businesses actually use third-party Exchange providers? Don't they manage their own servers?


     


    The charts shown above don't really say much about the market as a whole. My employer's activations wouldn't show on Intermedia's charts. I can't imagine any Fortune 500 company would either. The trends may be similar, but there's no way to know that from this kind of data.

    See, goat nudity's forbidden in their interpretation of the Quran, so they had to do something about that. And what better way to mock the Americans than to order directly from one of their companies!
