Android enterprise market share grows, still below Apple (AAPL) iOS

In for months covering May 2010 to August 2010, Google’s Android OS grew its market share within the corporate environment from 10% to 16% – up from just 3% in November of 2009. Impressive stuff.

But what about iOS, the operating system that powers Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL)┬áiPads, iPhones and iPods? It’s not doing too shabby either!

During the same period, iOS also grew its business market share from 30% to the 31% it sits at currently – nearly double that of Google’s OS.

As with everything in life, if there’s a winner there has to be a loser – in this case both RIM with its Blackberry handsets, Microsoft with Windows Mobile and Palm/HP with the Pre. All three are seeing their share drop, with Blackberry falling 3% between May and August 2010 and Microsoft and Palm both losing 1 percentage point in the same period.

What does this tell us? For starters, Apple’s recent moves to incorporate more business features into its iOS releases is clearly working – better Exchange support is one improvement from recent updates.

Secondly it’s worth noting that Android is on dozens of devices across a multitude of carriers. The iPhone is but one handset, and in the US at least, it’s on just one carrier too.

It makes you wonder – what would happen if Apple allowed its OS on other handsets, and onto other carriers?!
