GOOGLE HAS ANNOUNCED the launch of the Android Enterprise Recommended program, a biz-focused initiative that highlights devices that follow best practices for professional use.

Lockheimer said that since its inception, Android was aimed at unifying mobile development, making the process easier, more universal, and less resource-intensive.

The result is that any new device, and many BYOD devices, especially in typical office environments, already support Android enterprise.

Google also revealed that we're going to see new Android One and Android Oreo (Go) powered Smartphones from popular brands at MWC which is happening 26 Feb 2018 - 1 Mar 2018.

As the name implies, it's created to point enterprise IT departments at devices that Google has deemed to be enterprise-ready.

"Mobility has been critical to digital transformation for enterprises". Android Enterprise Recommended gives customers confidence by curating a selection of validated devices and services that meet elevated enterprise requirements from approved partners who have been trained and supported by Google.

About LG Electronics MobileComm USA LG Electronics MobileComm USA, Inc., based in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., is the US sales subsidiary of LG Electronics USA, Inc. a global innovator and trend leader in the global mobile communications industry.

Google provide a full list of the Android Enterprise Recommended program requirements.

At launch, Google is partnering with numerous OEMs to get several smartphone variants onboard with the programme. Ltd.'s devices aren't on the list, but Google indicated more devices from manufacturers will be added later. For example, devices must be running Android 7.0 or above and pack at least 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, must receive Android security updates within 90 days of release from Google, for a minimum of three years and have to offer "minimal" preloaded software.

Among the devices highlighted by the new program are Google's own Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL offerings, but the list also includes the Huawei Mate 10 and P10, BlackBerry KeyOne and Motion, LG V30, Sony Xperia X, and the Nokia 8.
