Special Report: The Mobile Devices that Mobile Experts Use

What Would a Mobile Expert Do?
If you are a regular reader of this blog you know that I routinely publish interviews with enterprise mobility experts.  You also know that I often ask them about the mobile device(s) they carry.  In this report, I have gone back over 17 recent interviews and collected the data on my interviewees' mobile device ownership and use.
 
Mobile Device Ownership Data:
  • 82% own iPhones
  • 53% own BlackBerrys
  • 24% own Androids
  • 8% own Windows 7
  • 82% own iPads
Primary Work Phone:
  • 59% use iPhones for work
  • 35% use BlackBerrys for work
  • 0% use Androids for primary work phone
  • 8% use Windows 7 for primary work phone
Primary Personal Use:
  • 71% use iPhones as a personal or dual purpose phone
  • 24% use BlackBerrys as a personal or dual purpose phone
  • 0% use Androids as a personal or dual purpose phone
  • 8% use Windows 7 as a personal or dual purpose phone
Interesting Statistics:
  • 100% of Mobile Experts that use BlackBerrys at work own iPads
  • 80% of Mobile Experts that use iPhones at work own iPads
  • 50% of Mobile Experts that use BlackBerrys at work, use an iPhone for personal use
  • 90% of Mobile Experts that use iPhones at work, use an iPhone for personal use
  • 24% of Mobile Experts own Android devices, but nobody (0%) use them as their primary work or personal phone - they are demo phones or back-up phones only.
I realize this report consists of data gathered from only 17 mobility experts, but it is interesting data nonetheless.
