iPhone and Android to surpass BlackBerry in enterprise

According to a recent IDC study, Apple's iPhone and handsets operating Google's Android operating system will combine to overtake the share of enterprise customers using RIM's BlackBerry.

IDC forecasts that Android shipments will hit 87.7 million units and iPhone shipments are estimated at 37.1 million. This is in addition to corporate-furnished sales, which is 15.1 million and 31.1 million for Android and iPhone.

These figures outpace what is expected of RIM's BlackBerry, reaching 5.2 million employee liable shipments and 14.8 million from consumers.

As IDC reported, BlackBerry continues to be the gold standard for security although there is a reduced interest in the platform from consumers and developers.
