"Apple iOS device activations still account for more than twice the number of Android activations in the enterprise when it comes to overall platform activations," Good reported. "iOS accounted for 70.8 percent, Android was 28.3 percent and Windows Phone 7 was 0.9 percent [in the three months to 30 June]."
This is in stark contrast to the overall market. UK based Kantar WorldPanel reported recently that Android accounted for 56.9 percent of smartphones in Australia at the end of June, up from 36.4 percent at the same time last year. iOS' market share was down from 36.9 to 30.5 percent
In enterprises surveyed by Good Technology, Apple's dominance of tablet activations was near total: the iPad accounted for 94.5 percent of tablet activations. "Smartphone usage still outnumbered tablet usage by three to one, accounting for 73 percent of total device activations, compared to only 27 percent for tablets," Good said.
While Windows Phone only accounted for 1.2 percent of overall activations in Q2, Good expects this number to grow in future quarters as additional devices become available. It added: "Windows Phone debuted in this quarter's report following initiation of Good's support for Windows Phone 7.5 in April 2012."
Android activations grew 10 percent overall in Q2 2012 to 37 percent, smartphone activations nearly doubled from Q1 2012.
In terms of market share, iOS activations dropped from 79.9 percent in Q1 2012 to 70.8 percent in Q2 2012. The iPhone 4S dominated activations in Q1 2012, at four times any other device, 30.8 percent of all activations. And iOS accounted for the top four devices activation slots: iPad 3, 13 percent; iPhone 4, 12 percent; iPad 2,10 percent.
Samsung's Galaxy S II was in fourth place at 4.5 percent, followed by the Motorola Razr at three percent. Then came the iPad (1) and iPhone 3GS at two and 1.5 percent followed by the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy.
Good says it analysed activations by month across thousands of corporate and government organisations, each with at least five activated devices, to determine the 'Top 10' most frequently activated devices and overall trends for net new activations across the mobile OS platforms.
However because RIM devices use the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for corporate email access, Good does not have insight into BlackBerry handset activation trends and they are not reflected in its report.
