Is Android 2.2 enterprise-ready? Ultimately, with input from the usual suspects like Gartner, Information Week concludes “yes”. My favorite quote:

“iPhones and Android are coming to the enterprise, whether IT likes it or not.”

Um, they’re already here. The small- to mid-size firms have already elected to skate on that bleeding edge. Most of the features the pundits say are lacking are mainly a concern for only the largest of organizations bound and determined to command their IT with an iron fist (and a Blackberry Enterprise Server). And I have a sneaking suspicion that once the powers-that-be in such an org actually get to see/use something like Android or iPhone, the ‘standard’ will turn on a dime. Or more hypocritically, the standard will remain the same for all, but that exec will get a special dispensation from IT.
