Report: iPhones, Windows tablets to dominate enterprise device purchases

Tools

Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone remains the top choice for enterprise customers as they think about their next smartphone purchase, but Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) should take heart as more business users are thinking about purchasing a Windows tablet over an iPad for their next tablet purchase, according to a new research report. Those are some of the headline findings of Forrester Research's second annual Forrsights Workforce Employee Survey, which found that 33 percent of workers surveyed would choose an iPhone for their next work smartphone purchase, far outpacing even Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android, at 22 percent. In terms of tablets, 32 percent of workers would choose a Windows tablet for their next tablet purchase; only 2 percent of those surveyed said they had a Windows tablet now. The researchers at Forrester surveyed nearly 10,000 global information workers across 16 countries. Article
