Ok so I got my test android tablet up to 4.0.4 os. Here is what I found.
Joining the device to EMM, no email/calendar/contacts. I have to install SC to get those. I think the issue those two S4 users were having was not clicking the button in SC to swap between the calendar/inbox/contacts. I found that was a pita on my tablet and only worked 50% of the time if I pressed in the tiny correct spot. THAT NEEDS TO BE UPDATED, to a bigger button and more obvious.
Here is what I have:
samsung tab 7 w/ OS 4.0.4
The tablet has and supports hardware encryption. Why are my android 4.x devices requiring SC when they support hardware encryption?
I am on 10.2.4 emm now, and can skip SC install @ emm join. Then have to manually enter the account info to get email/calendar/contacts. The only device now that has this issue where it has to have SC, is Moto Rzr Maxx
