We’ve developed and managed the deployment for many of the top Android business apps. Along the way we’ve learned a thing or two. One thing is certain, supporting Android poses unique challenges which iOS inherently does not face.

As Android continues to grow in popularity among the BYOD crowd, this is a market you shouldn’t ignore.

We will dive into the issues, and come out with some strategies for attacking them head on:

Hardware Diversity
Android OS Versions
Screen Resolutions
Openness vs Security
MDM vs MAM (Mobile Device vs Application Management)
Phone or Tablet?
Manufacturer Skins
Carrier Craziness
Device Support Lifecycle
Application Support Lifecycle
