For everything Android does offer, the operating system often catches flack for a lack of enterprise functionality. It’s a problem Google has addressed directly in more recent iterations of the smartphone platform and one that manufacturers have tackled via form factor and added third-party software. The latest collaboration in the enterprise field, however, could be just the thing businesses are looking for. Taking their experience in the enterprise space, IBM has teamed up with HTC to provide software solutions for Android smartphone and tablets focusing on security for business use. The software was shown off at IBM’s Lotusphere and Connect conference, here HTC exec David Jaegar put an emphasis on the new partnership as a way to move more handsets. Aside from a boost from IBM, HTC is also looking to third-party developers to help businesses create custom software for deployment on HTC’s tablets.
