Google launches Android phone recommendation program for businesses

To push Android farther into the workplace.

Google announced the launch of Android Enterprise Recommnded today, a business-focused certification program to convince more companies to trust and rely on certain Android smartphones that meet a new set of requirements. Because of the scale of Android, the number of handsets out in the wild, and the lack of consistency when it comes to security and operating system updates, Google has found it difficult to ensure companies. This program is designed to green light a handful of devices for corporate use.
