The iPhone is not for business. I think HSBC made the switch they would notice a huge drop in productivity. Blackberry is for business power users. You absolutely need a keyboard.
“Global banking giant HSBC is considering ditching the BlackBerry and adopting Apple’s iPhone as its standard staff mobile device, a move that could result in an order for some 200,000 iPhones.
“We are actually reviewing iPhones from a HSBC Group perspective…and when I say that, I mean globally,” Brenton Hush, HSBC’s Australia and New Zealand chief information officer, told ZDNet.com.au this week.
HSBC has some 300,000 staff internationally. A decision to standardize on the iPhone on its corporate networks would likely lead to one of the world’s largest iPhone orders.” (link)
