Android Means Business, at the Cost of BlackBerry

Posted by at 2:20 pm on September 22, 2010

Android’s share of the  business phone  market has gone up 60 percent in just a few months, in a study by ChangeWave. Only 10 percent of US companies used Android in May, but the number shot up to 16 percent in August. The iPhone was the only other platform to grow but moved up just slightly to 31 percent.

Among Android phone designers, HTC and Motorola were virtually even for demand at 15 and 16 percent each.

The combined effect of Android and the iPhone has cut into competiors. BlackBerry took the largest hit, dropping to two thirds of US smartphone at work. Windows Mobile dropped slightly to nine percent. PalmOS or webOS now represent  only six percent of business users.
