Probably true in the US.

At the same time, note that the report was mostly about how Android's share had risen, while Apple's share had fallen by the same amount.

Good provides mobile device management and security tools for large companies who want to control internal access.

They've been around for a pretty long time, and were even owned by Motorola for a while between 2006-09, I think.

The activation numbers come from inside the companies who use Good services. As to whether or not this accurately depicts what's actually going on, who knows.

Will be interesting to see if they enhance windows integration for fields that cannot move to Mac.

Windows Phone in enterprise sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

I wouldn't be surprised if China were close.

What economic hardship? Last I heard most large corporations were posting profits.

I think you have skipped watching the news since 2012.

There have been so many rumors about a wearable device based on the supply chain. It's hard to doubt it with that kind of evidence.

I know several companies that have dropped Good in favor of MobileIron in the last 12 months. I'd be curious to see what they report (if they would report their #s) given that their growth has been exponential compared to Good's lately.

With a +5% gain for Android and -5% loss to Apple for this quarter alone, it's only a matter of time before Android will rule the enterprise sector!

Time for Apple to PANIC!! They really need to get it together.

Considering it doesn"t even support Blackberry and Windows Phone has a much better solution from the beginning, these numbers are kinda meaningless, except to say "Android are a bit more present compared to iOS".

Let's see.

Current US estimated population, 314 Million
Current EU estimated population, 506 Million
Current Indian estimated Population, 1.24 Billion
Current Chinese estimated population, 1.35 Billion

While the US is an important market, it's hardly the #1.

Well, Exchange and SCCM/Intune is probably a better solution for iOS and Android as well. I hadn't even heard of this.

True, but Exchange & cie aren't marketed as much for iOS/Android than it is for WP.
I've got to work with BES, Good and FIXMO and everyone in my team wanted to kill themselves when we had to do something on Good :<

Increasingly I'm hearing more and more enterprises are abandoning Android and Windows and moving exclusively to iOS and Mac deployments.

I’m looking at some mobile dev work in the Fed sector (extended an existing solution of ours), and they’re using XenMobile (the Citrix product).

Should I start pulling my hair out now or later?

[edit]

FWIW, they’re looking into deploying iPads, and not just for data entry, it would be a very “tablet-centric” solution, really capitalizing on the portability and camera (+GPS data).

You do realize Android stole 5% market share from Apple this quarter alone!!!
This is horrible news, before long Apple is going to be left with 20% and Android 80%. Something must be done!!!

They provide the (mediocre at best)* Good for Enterprise email app on my company's iPhones, which are restricted so much that we've had to provide sub-par apps to replicate existing functionality which is blocked. For example, we have an app which allows us to take GPS-tagged photos, add some text, and have it emailed to us as a PDF. It crashes a lot, regularly fails to send the PDF, and forces small photos, which are so grainy that it's difficult to work out what exactly we were trying to record.

If we were allowed to use the standard camera app, and the standard mail app, this process would be much easier and might actually work. As it is, I usually plug the iPhone into my laptop and use Outlook to send the photos.





*with a name like that they're asking for it!
