Quantas, an Australian airline, is making headlines because the company just revealed it’s planning to replace every one of the 1,300 Blackberry devices it distributes to its employees with iPhones. Reportedly the reason for the switch is a combination of the cost overhead and employee opinions. The transition will be gradual, but it’s safe to say that this is definitely not good news for the Blackberry maker RIM.
This is pretty significant for a number of reasons, most notable of which is the fact that Blackberry has, for years, been the one and only choice for corporate accounts. When the iPhone came out, this was Blackberry’s one saving grace. But now that iOS has been equipped with many important business features, Apple has managed to invade this category as well.
What are your thoughts about the iPhone’s growing corporate presence? What will it mean for Blackberry down the road? Sound off down below in the comments section or on twitter @TiP_Jake.
