"Intermedia manages more than 500,000 premium-hosted e-mail accounts with Microsoft Exchange. According to the company's data collected from September through November, Apple's iPhone represented 68.2 percent of smartphone activations by small and medium businesses.
Apple's control of this segment of the enterprise market left Google Android in a distant second place, with 25.1 percent of activations during the three-month span. Research in Motion's BlackBerry platform accounted for 4.1 percent, while Windows Phone took 2.6 percent."
This is actually good news for RIM. Let me explain why to the iSheep with half-dead brain caused by long hours playing angry birds.
If a company has 1000 employees, how many of them do you think have iPhone? If you think 680 (68% of 1000), you are brain dead. This is NOT what the report is stating.
The report is talking about ACTIVATIONS. For all we know all 1000 of them could have Symbian phones.
To continue the example above if there are let's say 10 activations you have:
6.8 going with Apple
2.5 going with Google
0.4 going with RIM
Why is this good news for RIM? Because RIM user base is still growing when everybody is telling us that is shrinking. Expect this trend to change a bit with BB10.
Anyways.. Thor is going to tell us more tomorrow. (or is it today?)
Not true, there may have been new activations but many more left altogether. If not for africa the sub base would be shrinking. Just take a look at kijiji and tell me how many people want out of the BB contract. Until this tide changes it's not good news for RIM.
Hopefully bb10 will change the tide, but thats in Jan, and I wouldn't be holding overnight here.
There isn't any indication from those numbers that RIM's user base is growing. People deactivate phones too. Think things through before you reply otherwise your posts just become counter productive.
