Good news for Apple: iOS doubles up Android in Enterprise

Android may be catching up to iOS in terms of overall users, but according to Good, a maker of mobile enterprise messaging software, it is nowhere close to Apple in the enterprise.  Key findings of the report:

Among its many insights, the report shows that in less than two months from its late June launch, the Apple iPhone 4 became the most frequently activated device among Good’s enterprise customers. The Apple iPad leaped into the top five very quickly as well, showing that enterprise customers want to use these new tablet devices for business. Android continued to grow rapidly as more new devices come to market, with the Droid X by Motorola ranked as the most frequently activated Android device in September.

Current market share is broken up like so:

  • Apple iOS devices represented more than 50 percent of net new activations from June through September, 2010
  • Android devices represented nearly 30 percent of net new activations over that period
  • Windows Mobile devices represented 15 percent of net new activations over that period

Blackberry, though biggest in Enterprise, is not represented because Good’s software replicates what Blackberry Enterprise servers already utilize.
