Apple iPhone and iPad Corporate Domination - Android Losing
A new report has made its way online from a software company called 'Good', who has their services implemented through multiple platforms within a massive network of enterprise and corporate customers worldwide. Good has analyzed activated smartphones and tablet devices through these networks and found that Apple is killing it in the business realm. Much like you see Windows PC domination within the workplace, Apple has found a way into the corporate sectors by skipping the desktop and laptop deployments, and heading straight for the mobile needs of Fortune 500 companies.
As seen above, Apple's iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPad 3, iPad and iPhone 3GS, (the last 3 generations of devices) are outpacing any of the most popular Android devices. The funny thing about that is the Apple iOS devices new to 3 years old are still doing better than the 1 year old Android like the Galaxy S II. The deployment by OS ratio is iOS at 80% versus Android devices at 20% month over month for the last quarter of 2012.
The image above here shows that Android tablets are a complete failure in the corporate realm. It is worthy to note that Apple just reported another record quarter, and getting the top companies in the world to buy into your products is a sure way to continue putting large amounts of money in the bank. Good's numbers reported above are from 94% of the Fortune 500 list and 75% of the Global 500 list.
With the iPhone 5 launch drawing ever nearer in 2012, there's no question that these numbers will increase as it seems Apple is unstoppable, despite some claims that they are simply riding on Steve Jobs' innovative train through 2013.
The iPhone 5 (sixth generation iPhone) is expected to have in-cell touchscreen technology making it easier to maintain a thin body while having more room inside to fill with higher spec hardware. A liquid-metal casing is also expected as opposed to the glass outer casing, and 4G/LTE is expected to be included with a 12 megapixel camera, 4inch screen and quad-core Apple A6 chipset.
