    I don't think Android would be a good choice for businesses. Download the wrong app and an employee might give away all company information.

    Lmao. Wow, you guys continue to surprise me. Android is just as secure as any iPhone.

    Indeed, both are capable systems. The only problem is iOS is that it is terribly limited, which is what most people need. They need a simplistic system. Android isn't hard to learn, but it certainly isn't as easy as iOS's simplicity. Android is safe as long as you know what you are doing and don't download things that are questionable. The App Store (iOS) is much more secure over what goes into it. Please set me strait if I am incorrect, but I believe the Android Market and Google Play is much more open to whoever has an App.

    Anyways...BB is business. Android and iOS are on par in terms of functionality. Just pick what you want. Four or five years ago, however, I would have to say that iOS would be the no-brainer choice.

    You'd be surprised at the Enterprise level controls Android offers. I'm actually surprised there were any to begin with.

    That is not true at all. On Android an app can take all of the users contacts or track their location without even asking and it gives you no choice. When you download an app a lot of them say they can access phone call logs, messages, location, etc.

    A lot? Yeah right. If it needs it, then its for a actual reason and if it doesn't need it for any reason then the app may be suspicious.

    You must be misinformed.

    It tells you what the app grants itself access to on the confirmation page of the download...

    No, Google has protection over what goes into the Play Store. And you can only download third party apps if you choose to set it up that way.
