Apple Will Take Control Of Enterprise Market: Apple's iOS operating system has consolidated its dominance in the business user segment in the fourth quarter, based on the data enabled mobile device vendor Good Technology.
In the analysis of the report enabled mobile devices half a year, Good Technology said nearly 77 percent of the device is activated in the fourth quarter of 2012 is in the iOS operating system, up from 71% in Q4 2011.
Top 5 most popular device of Apple:
iPhone 5 (accounting for 32% of the product is activated in the fourth quarter)
iPhone 4S (20%)
iPhone 4 (14%)
iPad 3 (11.7%)
iPad 2 (7.7%)
What is the location of Android in mobile market now?
Android is bristling as Yahoo in the search field. Although there are a few bright spots but the Android OS is relatively modest growth in the enterprise mobility market, fell to 22.7% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 29% in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Even Windows Phone also lost 0.5% market share of Android in the fourth quarter.
Obviously, these numbers represent only a fraction of the number of devices is enabled but Good Technology with more than 4000 enterprises including more than half the companies in the top 100 of Fortune stretching across the fields industries such as healthcare, financial services, technology, retail, entertainment, life sciences.
So, this is a survey including the giant enterprises that deploy mobile system seriously, and obviously they prefer iOS.
John Herrema, senior vice president of Good Technology, said: "We have found the fourth quarter looks pretty similar to the previous quarter; iOS continues to assert its position by holding the most market section".
However, Herrema also note the progress of Android.
"The most significant growth of Android in the tablet market."
This is also good news for Android. The tablet products with Google's operating system accounted for 6.8% of the product is activated, rather than 2.7% last year.
Other small bright spot of Android:
Enabled Android smartphones who reached on iPad on January 10 and ended the fourth quarter with 21%, iPad still lost a bit.
Samsung Galaxy SIII, the most popular Android devices as reported by Good Technology, 6% of the total amount of activation in the fourth quarter.
Samsung with its efforts, tried to shape itself as a manufacturer of Android devices for now, Samsung's SAFE program is designed to remove fears about the security of Android. The popularity of the Galaxy smartphone product line marks an important place of Samsung in the heart of the business, especially with the Galaxy S4 plans to launch in April.
But, Herrema still thought, "No known time, especially for Android, will have a product to create effects such as the iPhone".
