Android saves businesses money

At the bottom of this WSJ article was an interesting tidbit on the cost savings associated with using Android in a business. Now that email access is a commodity service across devices, people have choice.  The savings of $1000 per employee per year by using Android over RIM is additional business value support for the consumerization of the enterprise:

Mattson Technology last year migrated from Microsoft’s software and email to Google’s Web-based applications. The Fremont, Calif., supplier to chip manufacturers stopped using BlackBerrys in favor of Android phones for 300 of its employees.

Android phones cost 20% to 30% less than BlackBerrys, said Matt Hough, Mattson’s senior director of global IT. Combined with lower server costs, the switch to Android saves the company $300,000 a year, he said.
