Who Pays For The Smartphones In Your Enterprise?

By  Susan Nunziata — May 03, 2010

It's no surprise that eight out of 10 respondents (83.2%) have approved and support the use of BlackBerry devices in the enterprise.
However, the percentage of respondents whose companies have approved and support additional smartphone platforms is notable: 45.4% sanction the iPhone, 38.9% support Windows Phone and 21.6% embrace Android.
Employees may be permitted to connect to corporate networks using the platform of their choice, but that doesn't always mean the organization pays for it. Only 39% of respondents use the corporate-owned model for all smartphone users; 13.9% say none of their smartphone users have corporate-owned devices. For most, each of the liability models is in play for some percentage of smartphone users.
