It reports rapid adoption of the iPhone and iPad in the enterprise. But Android is holding its own as well, with nearly 30% of overall new activations and 40% of new smartphone (ie, non-tablet) activations.According to
It's important to stress, however, that Good does not support BlackBerry devices so this is in no way an indication of how these devices are being adopted relative to RIM's products. Also, this data only tracks new activations.
As you can see, Apple's not exactly losing steam in the enterprise. But Android now has a steady showing, and it's especially strong in the handset arena. Ovum predicts that Google will eventually hold the biggest share of the tablet market. We'll see.
Things look grim for Microsoft. But with Windows Phone 7 is still brand new. And Good notes: "We do not expect the platform to disappear anytime soon, as many organizations in the Government/Public sector remain heavy users of Windows Mobile."
As Good previously reported, iPad use is most common in the financial sector. Since it last released data in November, health care has seen a bit of a jump and is now the second biggest industry for iPad use.
