Since the release of Appleâ€™s massively popular phone, the iPhone, it really was not considered much of a business phone. That award went to phones like the Blackberry, and phones with the Windows Mobile OS. That impression is changing as Apple adds more enterprise-friendly features to the iPhone. Now the iPhone has received the highest award possible in the most recent of the J.D. Power & Associates customer satisfaction survey of business smartphone users.Â
Apple is already beating Blackberry-maker Research in Motion in terms of revenues, but with the release of the J.D. Power & Associates results, Apple has brought one more triumph over RIM (Research In Motion) to add to the already growing list.Â
Out of 1,000 possible points, Apple received the high score ofÂ 778, RIM and Samsung came in second with the scores 703 and 701 (respectively). The iPhone scores high marks for itâ€™s innovative design, features, and the ease of use. Consequentially though Apple iPhone owners also had to pay the most for the devices, as the average price for their smartphones, $337.
