In its annual “2013 Small + Medium Business Mobile Trends Report,” hosted Microsoft Exchange provider Intermedia said Apple devices helped push SMBs further toward mobile with 190,000 device activations from January to October, a number representing 76 percent of total activations seen by the firm.

Intermedia claims to be the world’s largest third-party provider of hosted Exchange, delivering integrated email, calendars, contacts and other business tools to nearly 700,000 business users. Findings were gathered anonymously from the company’s ActiveSync activation program.

While Apple accounted for a huge portion of activations over the first ten months of the year, Samsung also grew with 29,000 device adds. Coming in third was Motorola with over 13,800 activations over the same period. Microsoft’s Windows-powered smartphones and tablets saw activation increase of 93 percent, though their baseline marketshare was quite small.
