  1. It absolutely will 🙂

    BYOD will thrive, and I think it’s here to stay. Employee demand, and they will Demand, will continue to drive BYOD into the enterprise.

    Employees have a taste, a taste of what it’s like to not have to carry two mobile devices, a taste of using a device of their choice – to conduct various business activities. That freedom and experience, I think, will make it impossible for the enterprise to roll back any BYOD initiatives. For any enterprise that has not begun their BYOD journey, it’s merely a matter of when, not if.

  2. I quite agree. Some people (e.g. the self-employed) have a genuine business need for smartphones and tablets, but I possess neither and would find the frustrations and costs would outweigh their uses (and attractions as toys). Small screens, fiddly data entry, transfer to hard copy a hassle, expensive contracts.
