Mobile and Wireless: iPhone 4S, Galaxy S III, Atrix HD: 10 Smartphones Fit for BYOD Business
It's no secret that the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives adopted by organizations, ranging from small businesses to large enterprises, is changing the way companies operate. Workers are no longer tied down to a limited set of devices and instead can connect their office lives and their personal lives through VPNs, cloud-based applications and unified communications capabilities built in to a variety of smartphones. However, just because employees and workers can bring their own devices into the office, and into the corporate network, doesn't mean that all smartphones are instantly equal. A growing number of manufacturers are launching handsets more specifically geared toward business usage, and of course, Research in Motion and its range of BlackBerry devices are still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to making sure employees can access the data they need while keeping that information secure. With these circumstances in mind, here's a look at the best-of-breed smartphones perfectly suited for BYOD environments. These smartphones can satisfy the IT managers who look after the network and employees who want the latest and greatest devices for work.
