Let’s face it, mobile handsets are expensive to buy and repair. For a lot of business customers they represent a significant investment and per unit are on par with a laptop or just about double the price of a workstation.
We think the iPhone SE will be popular for a number of reasons:
- Business customers are telling us that while their staff want iPhones as a corporate device, they are reluctant to spend $1300-$1600 for the privilege. iPhone SE is about half the price for a very similar feature set
- iPhones are easier to manage through mobile device management software whilst still allowing end users some freedom to use their corporate device for controlled personal use.
- Microsoft has a great suite of Office apps specifically for the iOS system, and having a cheaper handset with these quality apps adds to the attraction.
- Did we mention the price?
- Mobile plans are better value without an expensive handset to factor into repayments. Telstra’s $70 SIM only plan with unlimited calls/SMS and 10Gb of shared data per month is a great case in point.
There also appears to be a reasonable supply available, which will be a nice change from other launches of Apple phones in the past.
