Laptops and smartphones are the mobile computing products most commonly used by European chief executive officers (CXOs). However, web-based collaboration tools, valuable particularly for business travel, are gradually gaining importance as mobility becomes increasingly important.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, 2009 European CXOs’ Choice: Computing Products and Services, finds that smartphone ownership increased dramatically from 2008 to 2009, with the number of European CXOs (senior executives would work chief into their title) now owning a smartphone doubling.
This significant increase has directly affected standard feature phone ownership rates. Nearly all European CXOs perceive smartphones to be strictly business phones, while standard feature phones are seen as personal-use phones.
