"Choosing a good mobile smartphone is crucial for many small
businesses. The right smartphone can make all the difference
between being productive on the road and being ineffective away
from the office. Small business owners looking to choose a mobile
smartphone for themselves, or their workers, should think strongly
about passing up the iPhone for an Android.
"Don't get me wrong, the iPhone is a fine smartphone. I own one,
and I've been using it since the first generation phones came out.
Its interface is fantastic, you'll find tons of applications for
it, and it tends to be a really good device.
"As a consumer device, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend an
iPhone (or Android phone) to a friend or family member. The two
platforms are largely matched on features and application
availability at this point. But the iPhone has several strikes
against it as a business device that should give you pause, and
have caused me to start looking at Android."
