Individually acquired smartphones - those devices that employees purchase outright or get reimbursed for by the organization - are on the rise. A number of factors are influencing the fast growth of these "individual-liable" devices, including: corporate cost-cutting measures which have slowed the purchase of company-issued devices; employees purchasing devices in response to employer expectations that workers be increasingly mobile; and employees increasingly desiring smartphones with data plans for personal use with the intention that the device will serve "double duty" for their business email and network access.
