Android-approved devices, fit for enterprise

Google is looking to establish the high ground in confidence for mobile devices and services used in enterprise.

Google’s stamp of approval for business

To promote their list of approved products and providers, Google has established their own branded stamp-of-approval—Android Enterprise Recommended.

At launch, twenty-two devices from seven manufacturers get the stamp. The list includes Blackberry, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Sony and of course Google themselves. 

What it takes to be AER

When it comes to device specs, phones will only make the AER list if they run Android 7.0+, have at least two gigabytes of RAM, thirty-two gigabytes of storage and can be active for at least eight hours on a single change.

The most compelling part of the AER standard might be the services and support that must offer, including access and support.

Services and support

AER devices must be available to enterprise customers without any lock-in contracts. They must come with Play Store as the default app gateway, with no third-party skinning or intermediation.

Then, there’s the updates: the device must support the current version of Android, plus at least one letter upgrade to follow. Further, 90-day security updates must be delivered to keep devices secure.

Will your company’s next round of tech investment come from a list of Google approved products?
