Recently we talked about BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and how these devices are starting to intrude on your personal time. In our quest to be more connected, more informed and on top of the last news and events we use an assortment of smartphones and tablets.

Like most CEO, CIO and business executives you probably have been resisting the introduction of personal devices into your work environment. Although as a lot of you have already found out, whether you approve or not, your employees are probably already using personal devices at work.

If this is the case – don’t worry. You can at least get in front of this and control the flood by suggesting devices that are work benevolent.

Here is a list of devices that will be the least invasive.

  1. Apple iPhone 4/4S –  this phone is one of the most popular and is most likely already in use by many of your employees.  The 4S has features like remote device management and enterprise app-development.

    Just a quick question: What exact qualifiers did you use to get your list? Looking at the Android devices I see some on there like the Nexus (S or Galaxy?) that have similar specs to other phones that were not included? What separates the Nexus from a phone like the Galaxy Note for example? Or the Droid 4 vs Razr Maxx? Just wondering. Either way, as someone learning to develop apps for the Android platform I’m glad to see a few android devices sneaking in there.

      Hi CT2020 – Our list is by no means a complete list. There are many phones that use the same OS and technically speaking, these phones may make the list if their settings and configurations menu’s are as easy to use and understand. Our choices are based on the popularity, functionality and features of these smartphones. Because of users adoration for the new iPhone 4/4S and Samsungs Galaxy S III, they were at the top of our list.

    I basically see iPhone 4/4S, High end Android handsets (Galaxy SII/SIII/Note, a few HTC, A Nexus device here and there) and sadly still a lot of BlackBerry users clinging to there crackberries. I haven’t seen a Nokia in years.
