Android may be on a tear in the consumer mobile market, but a new study from Good Technology revealed that enterprise users tend to favor Apple products.
According to Good's report, 80 percent of new enterprise mobile device activations during the second quarters were iOS-based products, such as the iPhone and the iPad. Many of these activations were in the tablet sector, in which Apple represented more than 95 percent.
However, enterprise users also seem to favor Apple smartphones over Google's as well. According to the report, the iPhone accounted for two-thirds of new smartphone activations, while Android represented 33 percent. The study did not account for Blackberry or Windows Phone activations.
Overall, the iPhone 4 was found to be the most popular smartphone among enterprise users, accounting for 22 percent of activations during the quarter. No single Android device accounted for more than 5 percent of activations, though the Droid X, Droid 2 Global, Evo 4G and Incredible HD were listed as top 10 devices.
A recent study from ChangeWave may give an indication as to why the Apple products have proven popular in the workplace. According to the report, iPhone and iPad users tend to be more satisfied with their devices than Android users.
