Good Technology, a leading provider of secure and managed enterprise mobility for the iPhone, iPad, Android and other leading smartphone platforms, released its quarterly report today detailing the changing landscape of IT and mobile enterprise technology. It found that the trend of personal smartphones infiltrating the workplace is being led by both Apples iOS and Googles Android platforms. In Q1 of 2011, Good Technology found that both platforms were widely deployed by its enterprise customers, but with the launch of the Verizon iPhone 4 and the iPad 2, iOS devices had a particularly strong quarter.
The one-two punch of Verizon's long-awaited iPhone 4 launch and Apple's iPad 2 release made it an especially strong quarter for Apple," said John Herrema, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Good Technology. "AT&T's price drop on the iPhone 3GS to $49 also had a strong impact on overall iPhone activations. We still predict that Android activations will overtake iOS in the long run, but in the first quarter of 2011, Apple's iOS devices were the clear winner among Good's enterprise customers and their end users."
Here are some of the key data points of the report, courtesy of Good Technology:
- iOS devices represented just under 70 percent of net new activations from January 1 through March 31, 2011
- iOS tablet (iPad + iPad2) share of overall net activations slipped slightly from 22 percent to 20.4 percent over the quarter
- Among the top 10 industry verticals, financial services saw the highest level of iPad activation with 43 percent, more than doubling the amount of activation in any other industry
- Android devices declined just over 30 percent of all net new activations over the quarter, but represented over 40 percent of all smartphone (non tablet) activations
