In today’s marketplace, there are three main competitors for mobile phone communications in the corporate world: iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. As of late, iPhone sales have moved upwards of the 20 million mark while BlackBerry has been on the decline. Android has slowly but surely been making a play at iPhone sales but Apple’s divine reach seems too bright to eclipse in the foreseeable future.
According to a recent study conducted by MindWireless, during the third quarter of 2011, iPhone wireless expenses cost enterprises approximately 80% more than BlackBerry’s. To put that into perspective, if an enterprise of 1,000 users switches from BlackBerry to iPhone, they can expect their upfront costs to rise by over $100,000 and their annual costs to rise by over $900,000.
