According to ABI Research enterprise practice director Dan Shey, “Now that the mobile device platform environment is stabilizing by brand and form factor, the real work with the enterprise segment begins for the mobile device community. Businesses now want to translate platform capabilities into real business results. The winners will be those that offer the best combination of functionality, security and — increasingly — multimedia capabilities.”

The first two present US mobile business customers’ preference profiles, interest, adoption, and usage of mobile devices and services, segmented by size of business and by mobile operator, respectively. The third collects similar data for six major countries: the UK, Germany, France, China, India, and Indonesia.
