Android For Businesses May Come From IBM, HTC Partnership
At IBM's Lotusphere and Connect Conference, HTC made their presence known by ensuring their Android devices were able to run IBM's business software, while keeping security holes plugged. This is one of the first steps for HTC and IBM to partner in bringing Android smartphones and tablets into the workplace and business sector. HTC's David Jaeger said the following on the idea;
We’re driving toward that magic 100-million device number globally. We see IBM as the gold standard for an enterprise partnership. We want to make sure if IBM is talking about Android or tablets, HTC is in the conversation.
If HTC plans on surviving in this venture, they should take serious looks at how others before them failed (Dell Streak, HP TouchPad), and how others succeeded (Apple iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry Enterprise Smartphones).
