Report Apple Devices Dominate Market Share for Business Professionals

first_imgCorporate customers overwhelmingly prefer Apple devices to any other mobile or tablet technology, new data from enterprise mobility management firm Good Technology shows. When analyzing the mobile devices activated by corporate customers in the final quarter of 2012, the results showed Apple as the “clear winner among enterprise users, claiming the top five spots for device activations, and more than 90 percent of all tablet activations.”According to the results, the iPhone 5 was the most popular device in Q4, representing about 32 percent of all activations for the quarter—making it the leading device for enterprise activations of any iOS, Android or Windows Phone model. As the chart below shows, Android devices lag considerably when compared to Apple products. Windows device activations represented only 0.5 percent of activations in Q4 2012. Other findings in the study include:iOS tablets continue to hold market dominance, accounting for 21.1 percent of activations—Android tablets came in at 1.5 percent of total activations. Android tablets are gaining some momentum. Between Q1 and the end of Q4 2012, Android tablet activations jumped from 2.7 percent to nearly 7 percent of total activations. Good attributes this spike in part to the rise of hybrid phone-tablet devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note.center_img The financial services industry led enterprise mobile device activations—averaging 35 percent of all activations in Q4 2012. Business and professional services represented the second highest percentage at 19.4 percent, with wholesale and retail services coming in third at just 5.6 percent. The iOS platform garnered nearly 77 percent of total device activations in Q4 2012, up from about 71 percent for the same period in 2011. Android’s share actually decreased overall from Q4 2011 to Q4 2012, dropping from 29 percent in 2011 to 22.7 percent in 2012.Stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, follow us on Facebook & Twitter!last_img read more

Ford If you want Ford’s comprehensive FX4 off-road package for your Ranger midsize pickup, you have to option the truck with four-wheel drive. What, then, for buyers who only need to make do with two? Before today, you’d have to ask the aftermarket for help, but now, Ford has an in-house solution.Ford on Wednesday unveiled the Ranger FX2 Package. As the name suggests, this optional package applies to 2WD Rangers, offering up a bit more off-road-related equipment, along with a few aesthetic enhancements. It’s not as all-inclusive as the FX4 upgrade, but it’s a fair bit more affordable. Ford says it’s “aimed more at urban markets,” probably because those truly keen on hitting the rough stuff will opt for a 4WD Ranger.The FX2 Package starts off with a set of 17-inch off-road tires, although 18s are also available, along with a FX2 badge for the side of the bed. The air dam is removed, and there’s a new front underbody guard in its place. Behind the body, there’s an electronically locking rear differential and off-road-tuned suspension. The package is capped off with Ford’s off-road gauge cluster display, which shows vehicle pitch, roll and yaw.The FX4 equipment group, by comparison, is a bit more involved. That one also includes tow hooks and additional skid plates. It also includes the Terrain Management System, which changes vehicle parameters based on what’s under the wheels, whether it’s mud, sand, gravel or snow. The FX4 package also includes Trail Control, which holds a preselected speed over various types of terrain.But, for its price, the FX2 package is a solid deal. All that kit will only cost $595, compared with the FX4’s $1,295 price tag. This upgrade can be ordered at dealers now, with deliveries expected to commence later this year.
