iPhone and iPad dominate business communications, says new Good Technology report

Good TechnologyGood Technology, which provides a number of services to help businesses manage their mobile communications, has published its device activation report for the first quarter of 2012. The report looks at the smartphones and tablet devices activated amongst Good’s enterprise customers, including company-owned handsets and ‘bring your own device’ equipment supplied by individual users.

Apple’s iPhone 4S was responsible for 37% of all activations during the first quarter. In second place was the iPad 2 with 17.7% of activations for the quarter. Third place was taken by the iPhone 4, while the new iPad was in fourth place.

Overall, Apple accounted for 73.9% of smartphone activations and 97.3% of tablet activations, while Android had 26.1% and 2.7% respectively.

John Herrema, Good Technology’s senior vice president of Corporate Strategy, said “BYOD smartphones and tablets combined with proactive, company-owned iPad deployments is driving rapid growth in terms of both the size and number of new deployments amongst our customers. This includes significant growth in the number of Good users who have both a smartphone and a tablet, with the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 as the most frequently occurring combination.”

In total, the number of devices activated by Good Technology grew by 50% from Q4 2011 to Q1 2012 and was almost double the two previous quarters combined.
