I'm not a Apple lover or a Windows lover (as you both know) but I will say something about Android based phones.

The "normal" inDUHvidual wants a button to push to update the phone (ala Iphone). I play with the Android phones and the Acticesynch is a bit funny to get working 100% of the time. I believe this is mostly due to phones having gingerbread, honeycomb, ICS and JB on different hardware.

With an iOS device I jsut have it use Autodiscover and it "just works" I have 3 month old Galaxy S3 phones that are on 4.0.4 since VZ locked the bootloader but I have 4 year old 3GSs that run iOS 6 (it runs like a slug...but it does run).

I agree it really is up to the user experience.

One more thing - yes I know you can root the phone and get JB on the Galaxy S3 and other phones. My point is with so many users and BYOD in my office its MUCH easier to support only the iOS devices.

And this is coming from a ex-hardcore BB user!
