Those who have followed the developments in the iPhone world for the past few years know some of the challenges that Apple has had to face to get to where it is now. Many experts wrote off the iPhone when it was released to the market a few years ago. More importantly, many did not give the iPhone a chance to make a big splash in the business world. According to a survey by iPass, the iPhone is now more popular than the BlackBerry platform among business users.
iPass found that the iPhone is the most popular device among business professionals with a 45% share. The BlackBerry platform was a distant second with only a 32% share. Android may be rising fast in the consumer side. It is still a bit behind the BlackBerry among business pros.
While increasing iPhone usage in the workplace was inevitable, this is the tipping point when the iPhone has overcome the BlackBerry on its traditional enterprise turf, and business smartphones are in the hands of nearly every knowledge worker
explained iPass President and CEO Evan Kaplan (as reported on CNET). Things do not look good for the Blackberry fans. Android and iOS are expected to have even higher shares in the upcoming years. RIM has had plenty of chances to turn its ship around. At this point, the company seems headed towards troubling days. The mobile market trends are not in its favor.
Speaking of the business world, Siri for iPhone could be quite a handy feature for business professionals. It has excited many iPhone owners already. As MacRumors reports, Apple is planning to introduce further improvements to Siri in iOS 5.1:

German site Macerkopf reports. The next iOS update will most likely be released as early as next week. Apple has a gem on its hands in Siri. It is not surprising to hear about the company’s plans to make major changes to Siri to make it even more useful. Let’s hope iOS 5.0.2 fixes the battery issues some iPhone owners are struggling with.
