Apple, the Surprising Winner of the Business World
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss emerging trends in technology.
In today's edition, Jeremy and Eric look at a recent study that says the iPhone is the most popular workplace phone. This is all part of a trend called the consumerization of IT, in which IT departments are increasingly responding to the preferences of users instead of dictating what technologies employees use. This trend has powerful implications on all mobile-phone companies, but Apple could see the most outsized opportunity, since its corporate reach has historically been limited.
Apple's just one of the next-generation of multibillion-dollar companies riding the mobile revolution to a record profits. The Motley Fool has a just released free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion Dollar Revolution" that details a "hidden" component play inside mobile phones that also is a market leader in the exploding Chinese market.
