What is the convergence in the ecosystems of Smartphones and Unified Communications ? Where do IT manager find how much these devices can help the growth of UC ? If you have used a Blackberry at work, then you part of this statistic already ? Think about it – a vast majority of firms are now offering Blackberries in place of pagers to facilitate communication. With the advent of Android based phones, the firm grip that the Blackberries have over this segment will diminish. iPhones are also touted to get a chunk of this market though the ubiquitous nature of unified communications. A future trend would also be iPad’s or other tablet replacing these handhelds – but the convenience of walking around and typing a quick email reply would be lost.
