New research from Intermedia, the world’s largest provider of hosted Microsoft Exchange email accounts, indicates that 48.5 percent of small business users who access email from their smartphone now use an iPhone.
Intermedia’s customers are primarily small and mid sized businesses, over half of whom use smartphones to access their accounts. Nearly half (48.5 percent) of the company’s customers who use a mobile device to access their work email are using iPhones. Another 25 percent use BlackBerry, while 12.75 percent use Android-based devices and 13.75 percent use other mobile platforms, including Microsoft’s Windows Mobile or Windows Phone 7.
Intermedia also noted that iPhone users send more emails per user on average, while Android users receive more emails on a per user basis.
