Bumpy Landing of iOS 7 in the Enterprise Leaves Room for Windows Phone Growth - ABI Research

The consumerization of IT has reached a maturation state in key markets forcing smartphone OEMs to incorporate security and advanced enterprise features into mobile device hardware and software. ABI Research's report, "iOS 7 and Windows Phone 8 for Enterprise," examines how the iOS 7 software update will impact enterprise adoption of iPhones, and how current and future iterations of Windows Phone can accelerate business adoption of Microsoft's mobility platform.

iOS 7 and Windows Phone 8 for Enterprise

Senior analyst Jason McNicol comments,: "There was a lot of excitement with the release of iOS 7, especially in the enterprise where Apple included features enterprises were longing for. Some of those features, however, were not terribly innovative when compared to the services offered by the EMM/MDM market, while other enhancements have relatively limited functionality. Despite the positive market buzz, iOS7 enterprise features are unlikely to increase its enterprise presence. Plenty of market opportunity remains, especially for a company like Microsoft."

New enterprise features in the iOS 7 release include: advanced VPP control, open-in management, managed applications, single sign-on capability, per app VPN, and enhanced EMM/MDM vendor functionality.

ABI Research has forecast the adoption of iPhone and Windows Phone by region and by vertical. Apple iPhone subscribers will maintain 18% market penetration for the foreseeable future, whereas Microsoft should see market penetration increase to 6% by 2018. Commenting on the industry vertical data, McNicol notes, "When looking at adoption trends in specific regions, we see areas where Windows Phone stands to gain significantly. For example, Windows Phone consumer adoption has been very strong in Europe. As demonstrated by the Apple and Android platforms, a growing base of consumers is a key driver for expansion into the enterprise."

Practice Director Dan Shey adds: "Surprisingly, there are quite a few similarities between Apple and Microsoft allowing for a good comparison of the two platforms. While Apple has a significant lead over Microsoft, Microsoft is learning from Apple. If Microsoft keeps its promises for enterprise features expansion, we expect it to gain market share among mobile business customers."

These findings are part of ABI Research's Enterprise Mobile Devices Research Service, which includes Research Reports, Market Data, Insights, and Competitive Assessments.

Intel Wants to Win Apple's Chip Business

Motley Fool contributor Ashraf Eassa report that Intel CEO Brian Krzanich at the company's Nov. 21 investor meeting was quite explicit in that he would be willing to talk to any customer that could make use of Intel's leading-edge process technology (and was willing to pay for it), and says this was obviously aimed at Apple.

Eassa says that while one might conceivably view Apple as a chip competitor, there is a rather subtle nuance here worth exploring.

He notes that Apple's in-house software ecosystem is all ARM based, and since Apple enjoys the flexibility that comes with being able to custom tailor a chip to its own needs (rather than simply requesting certain features from a third-party chip designer), it is unlikely that Apple would ever use an off-the-shelf Intel chip for its iOS devices, but Intel probably wants some way to profit from the immense successes of both the iPad and the iPhone, so if it can't sell the apps processor, why not build Apple's chips?

iPad Air: One Week In

ZNet's James Kendrick says his initial impression of the iPad Air was quite favorable, and updates his take after a week's heavy usage.

He notes the iPad Air's solid construction and that it's impressive how much Apple has crammed into such a thin product, which has functioned superbly with heavy usage, with nothing he would change if given the opportunity. The one pound weight of the Air feels nice in the hand, and it's effortless to use it for hours at a time.

He notes that the Air has pretty much displacecd his first generation iPad mini for usage, and while he was previously willing to trade the smaller screen for the comfort of using the tablets, that's no longer the case with the iPad Air in the mix.

In summary, he says he's very happy with the iPad Air for both work and play, and wouldn't trade it for anything.

Reflex - Vintage Camera and Pic Editor for Instagram

Do you know the famous vintage twin-lens reflex camera (TLR) like Rolleiflex, Rolleicord, YashicaMat, Kinaflex, Duaflex, Contaflex, Anscoflex, Argoflex and Argus 75? Adobe has paid homage to the TLR's significance in photographic history on the front of Photoshop Elements 12's shrinkwrap box, and Lotogram's Vintage Photo Editor and Video Camera App on the Apple App Store includes quick and easy editing tools and Industry Film Coloring Standard to simulate the vintage photos.

The twin lens reflex is a type of camera invented around 1870 with two objective lenses of the same focal length - one for focusing and viewing, and once for capturing the picture.
