If Apple Won’t Do It, Somebody Else Should

by Phillip Redman  |  February 14, 2013  |  Comments Off

In a survey from December 2012, 63% of respondents said that  iOS will be their primary enterprise platform in the next twelve months, if it isn’t already.  There’s no doubt that Apple has taken the enterprise world by storm.  Its done just enough to offer enterprises security and management, and although there’s a list an [...]

What To Expect When You’re Expecting: iPhone 5

by Phillip Redman  |  September 10, 2012  |  Comments Off

Hopes are running high this week.  For improved employment figures, for a stronger stock market?  No–for the new Apple iPhone 5 expected to be announced this Wednesday.  I’m not sure what people really expect, or want.  I guess that’s what’s so special about the launch of a new iPhone,  Apple seems to know what we [...]

CTIA Wireless Conference 2012: Changing Of The Guard

by Phillip Redman  |  May 11, 2012  |  Comments Off

It’s funny–my first CTIA conference I went to in the mid-1990′s had kind of a start-up feel to it.  There weren’t a lot of big name companies there, not in the way we know the Nokias or Motorolas of today.There were quite a few industry exhibitors with speacilized products–cable seals or cellsite shelters, that you [...]

Coming to the party? It’s BYOD.

by Phillip Redman  |  January 17, 2012  |  Comments Off

It’s nothing new: everyone wants more choice and that includes what mobile device they want to use also.  Mobile handheld devices span both corporate and personal uses so it’s only natural as more choices emerged that individuals would want to bring their own device (BYOD) to work.  Apple iPhone has generally been that choice and [...]

With Apple and Google It’s More About Transparency

by Phillip Redman  |  April 28, 2011  |  Comments Off

Last week’s broad public disclosure that Apple was keeping a tracking file on iOS 4.0 devices once again points to how apple does business its own way.  For many, it was already known that the iPhone was easily tracked, with apps-a-plenty in the Apple App Store to help out on this.  Not to mention the [...]

RIM PlayBook: More Play Than Work

by Phillip Redman  |  April 20, 2011  |  Comments Off

RIM has launched its entry into the media tablet storm this week, with the much anticipated PlayBook.  But trying to get ahead of the competition, it may have rushed it to the market without finalizing key attributes.  First, is this a consumer device or an enterprise?  It certainly isn’t both, maybe neither.  Enterprise users need [...]

Wireless Data Pricing Reaches A New Low

by Phillip Redman  |  November 9, 2010  |  2 Comments

Back in 1995, one of my first big wireless research projects was on pricing elasticity.  At that time, a wireless voice minute cost about $2.25 and only about 13% of the population had phones.  These were mostly business people who could get reimbursed for their use.  In the industry, the widely held belief was that [...]

We are now fully in the era of the smartphone.  At no other time have we had such numerous choices of quality devices from companies like Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Apple, HTC, Motorola and RIM, to name just a few.  Adoption of smartphones by both consumers and enterprises is big.  This year, more than 70% of [...]

New Tablets More Smartphone Than PC

by Phillip Redman  |  September 29, 2010  |  9 Comments

It used to be that everyone wanted the smallest.  Phone that is.  The race to reduce the size and weight was started by the Motorola StarTAC.  Everyone wanted (and had) one.  Even smaller and lighter phones came out.  But that’s ended. Now there’s a race to the biggest.  Many of the almost dozen new tablets [...]
