Today’s mobile device market is inundated with options. It seems like every major manufacturer has a device on the market, but out of these thousands of devices, two stand tall: Apple’s iPhone 6 and Samsung’s Galaxy S6. We featured these devices in our recent webinar, “Device Trends in the Corporate Marketplace.”
Shockingly, while iPhone 6 sales in the enterprise increased 28% compared to average monthly orders, more than 50% of new procured devices went to Android. Did the enterprise employee check out the new iPhone, but choose Samsung’s reasonably-priced Android instead?
Right now, Mindglobal clients average about 7,000 mobile lines per enterprise. We took a dive into aggregated client data for the last 4 years, which identified fascinating information and confirmed trends in mobile procurement. In the full webinar, we addressed current leading device options, enterprise device trends for the last 5 years, and the “Choose Your Own Device (CYOD)” vs. BYOD movement. Note the varying device costs:
