Might Android finally get serious about business out of the box?

In a recent post, I compared how Android supports Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Mobile Device Management (MDM). We saw that out-of-the-box Android does not really address the enterprise very well, leaving device manufacturers to come up with their own systems for managing devices in a corporate environment. For example you can see what Samsung is doing with KNOX, or to a lesser extent LG, Lenovo, and Motorola are doing with basic device management software on their devices. If you wanted comprehensive device management before, you had to support and deploy devices that had customizations to Android for the enterprise.

Today that seems to have changed.
