    A recent survey from IBM of more than 4000 IT professionals across the industry shows that more of them are interested in developing for the Android platform than for iOS. In fact their survey showed that 70% of IT pros are planning to develop and/or deploy for the Android OS. Here's a quote from the IBM survey,
    The survey also indicated that than 75% of those surveyed are currently working on some form of mobile app. That number is expected to rise to 85% within two years.

    I am not terrific at math but those numbers equal quite a bit more than 100.

    Internally as well. The poll was posted to IBM employees as well. The results showed a higher number of Android users. There is an ever growing amount of Android based apps for use with IBM's internal systems as well. It's nice to finally have the ability (although limited) to add productivity during transit on the Campus's.
