Re: Android BYOD
@mobileSuze. You are right. BYOD is going to make the difference in the coming days. But, its still in a take off stage and has to gain some height before coming to fruition. The main concern is the security and safeguarding corporate data. The data safety and protection is still in question.

Great update
Thanks for the update, Will, especially that bit on Google Apps. The Apps fan that I am hadn't heard about it until now. It's one more reason to go with Google Apps.

Re : Android and the cloud
I particularly like the bit about Android and the cloud. For businesses that have adopted cloud computing, the combination of Android and the cloud can be a very potent mixture and one that could enforce any BYOD program without raising any security concerns since the devices will never get to touch enterprise directly at any single point.

Re: Android BYOD
M.Kudla: I think the enterprise sees Android's fragmentation as a threat when, in fact, they could use its openness as a way to understand security issues better and come up with solutions for them.

Re: Android BYOD
Mobile: Apple did a great job with the iPad to introduce tablets to regular users, but much of the recent development has come from manufacturers packing superior hardware into a slim, energy-efficient form factor.  It's obvious that we are only at the beginning right now, and future innovation will occur, so I look forward to reading, writing, and commenting about tablet industry progression.

Re: Android BYOD
Mobile: The Kindle devices have done a great job to casually bring e-reader users into the tablet market, without directly needing an iPad, Nexus, etc.  The Surface Pro is a solid device, especially compared to the first model, but unless we are directly talking about corporate users, I think the MSRP will simply be too much for regular users.

Re: Android BYOD
I don't think that there's any "bad Android karma."  Yes the market is fragmented because there's not one producer producing one device and forcing updates on it (like Android's only other major competitors.)  This is the nature of open development platforms.  The fact is Android is available for many more uses than competing mobile platforms because you can load it onto almost anything.  It's also why the market share is so high.  There are other factors as well.

I've said this many times before and it's still cognizant today:  Android's development is to the mobile market what the browser wars were to web 2.0. 

I don't know too many developers that haven't used Eclipse as an IDE, even though it's fragmented in a million directions for a million different languages and versioning options.  In my mind Android is the same.  An open platform that is going to continue to be modular and complex.  Of course there will be some installations that are "novice user" installations, just like ubuntu is in linux distros.

As far as the virtualization front goes, Android has a funny security architecture that is a little unusual for a segment of the population.  It will take time to get the hypervisor layer solid and working properly.  I think they've been in development long enough where we'll finally start seeing very solid virtualization options in the android market soon.  Don't forget that for a long time people questioned if Android would even compete, now that it's here to stay I see a lot more backend development going on from 3rd parties.

Re: Android BYOD
I definitely agree, @Mobile. Notwithstanding the fact that more and more tablets and mobile devices are being released every quarter.

Re: Android BYOD
I think as time goes on, the envelope is constantly being pushed with each and every release. I've been following the development of BYOD and I do think it will become more common with the advent of these newer devices.

Re: Android BYOD
" I look forward to watching how tablets and smartphones continue to disrupt the industry."

@ Michael    Me too !  It is amazing how far tablets have come in just  the past two years,  at that time I would not have considered them a viable tool for effective BYOD, but that surly is not the case now.
