For a while now, I have been stating and documenting the iPhone’s progress in the enterprise. This progress has not only been through Apple's efforts, with the iPhone 3.0 OS update that addressed some enterprise concerns, as well as the new iPhone3GS device launch, but companies that are Enterprise enablers such as my own company Sybase, with the enterprise enablement of email and device security & management.
This week Apple’s earnings announcement revealed some interesting facts, that now show that this is happening for sure! Part of the Apple Announcement that really got me interested, were the fugures that 20 percent of Fortune 100 companies placed orders of 10,000 units or more, while some governmental agencies ordered up to 25,000 units.
In total 5.2 million iPhone units were sold in the third fiscal quarter (I'm not surprised as you may know... when I reported on lines at the London & NYC Apple stores) and Apple's COO Tim Cook had some interesting things to say.
