Apple is now on top in the Enterprise World

During the past years, Research In Motion (RIM-maker of Blackberry) was always been the priority for the government and enterprise world because of its secured and solid email system. But now, it looks like their rank is now falling behind the rise of Apple in the two major arenas.

In a market that once dominated by RIM, a new report by Good.com states that “Apple is fast becoming the provider of choice for businesses”.  As RIM struggles in the declining number of sales in their smartphones and their newly launched Blackberry Playbook, Apple seems to fill the gaps while Android plays also a smaller part in the Enterprise world. 95% of tablet activations in the 2nd quarter of this year were with Apple’s iPad/iPad 2 while 3.1% from Androids. To sum up the report claimed by Good.com, there were more iPads activated during the period than the combined sales of Android tablets plus smartphones. Not bad for a device that has been designed supposedly for watching movies and browsing the web.

“In the second quarter of 2011, the most striking thing is Good’s users activated more iPad tablets than Android smartphones and tablets combined,” said John Herrema, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Good Technology. “While Android may be gaining smartphone market share with consumers, our business users are clearly gravitating to the iPad and doing so in large numbers. This is especially true in the Financial Services sector, which drove nearly half of all Good’s iPad activations over the quarter.”

An interesting report also was revealed that during the 2nd quarter, iPhones comprises about 66% of the total smartphones that were activated while android is at 33%. This points out that the combined manufacturers using Android OS was still below Apple’s numbers.

As the Fall approaches, will the new iPad with HD and the iPhone 4S/5 will be a killer to Android-based gadgets?
