    During IBM’s Lotusphere and Connect conference recently, representatives from IBM and HTC demoed some IBM enterprise software running on HTC Android smartphones and tablets in order to lure more enterprise level customers to adopt Android. HTC is focusing primarily on security applications right now, but is also working with third-party developers to assist in the creation of custom applications for HTC tablets. Here's a statement from HTC’s executive director of Global Enterprise and Services David Jaegar,

    HTC has been working with IBM to make sure IBM’s smart business applications worked well on HTC devices. It will be a challenge for Android to break into this tough market that is dominated by RIM and a growing Apple presence, but with the behemoth that is IBM in their corner, it will be inevitable for Android to find success here.
