Here is what devices CEOs and their employees use
The top management of the company is not quite like everyone else - it dictates the rules, and that’s why it’s very interesting to take a look at what CEOs actually use themselves and is there any difference between that and what their employees have to use.

And the latest survey by CEO.com found some interesting results. Chief executives are nearly all using smartphones and a lot are still using BlackBerries. But while most top managers use iPhones, their organizations have employees using Android the most the iPhone comes only third.

While the notebook is the second most popular gadget with CEOs after the smartphone, the tablet is quickly growing and now nearly 78% of executives use one. Check out the inforgraphic below for some additional interesting details.

It does makes sense. Because the Galaxy Note 2 is a great business oriented phone with many key features that point towards business purposes.

maybe there is a chance that the Note 2 will be a great business oriented phone, ONLY if Google can improve on Android security flaws...

The only Android security flaw is an ignorant user.

okay what phones are more business suited than the Note 2? Dont say BlackBerry because they been fell off, don't say Nokia Lumia 920 because that phone is just way too goofey, and its dam sure not the iPhone because for one it doesn't support certain files and for 2 the features are not keen on business related things because it's just too simple of a phone.

I'm a hard driven Samsung fan because they're the only ones with innovation. The Note 2 is probably too big for your pewny hands anyways. #law

So basically what you mean was other than Samsung phones even any other Android phones such as the Google Nexus are not innovative as well?

Well EVERY Smartphone is a great business oriented phone with many key features that point towards business purposes. It clearly shows that you are one of the thousands of the Too-Devoted-to-it. Note II fans whom will selfishly defend their notes.

If i am a business man i would pick Galaxy Beam instead. hey! it can atleast do some slide presentation......

They put Siri in there instead of Google Now. Article automatically discredited. Shame in you, Business Insider.

My exact thoughts. I was like ' really? CEO's use Siri? They sure have a lot of time to waste'

Most CEO's carry many phones around with them . Example iPhone + Blackberry is what is usually see . But sometimes also android + blackberry or android/iPhone with Nokia eseries such as E6 or E72 .
A lot of CEO's moved on to iPhone and Android but still want to keep their blackberry's and e series along with them as a second phone , weird right ?

well its because a lot of people still like the REAL keys of BlackBerry and E-series! they are superior...

remember when people use to say that iPhones are just toys, but now they mean business! that's what nokia and RIM miscalculated! they didnt foresee what's going to happen!

so yeah...i dont find it weird for people to carry 2 phones one touch phones (iPhones, Androids, etc) and a BlackBerry or Nokia E-series! even non CEO, Common people uses 2 phones! one touch screen and BlackBerry or any nokia!

and it is still easy to make emails of the real keyboard!
