Enterprise mobile services vendor Good Technology reported that iPad accounted for 96 percent of tablets and iPhone 53 percent of smartphones activated by the more than 2,000 companies using its services in the fourth quarter, giving iOS a 71 percent share of all mobile devices.

Color me unsurprised.

That 53% iPhone number is certainly buoyed by bring-your-own-device policies. My guess is that the iPhone revolution will, in the end, result in far fewer corporate smartphones overall. Why should a company pay big bucks for hardware and data plans when they can let the employees foot most/all of that bill?

And I suspect that the only hope for Android smartphones to proliferate as either corporate or BYOD devices (for anything more sophisticated than email) will be the virtual containers being erected to protect corporate data from the rest of the phone.

There’s virtually no hope for Android tablets, at least until there are radical changes to the current market dynamics.
