Once upon a time Blackberry was the go to Business device for companies. Then it became one of a few choices. Now it is missing entirely from companies’ top phone choices for their employees. The case with Yahoo is that employees have 5 phones to pick from:iPhone 5, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III, Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC EVO 4G LTE.
The decision to go with these devices was that of Yahoo’s CEO, Marissa Mayer, all U.S.-based employees one of five phones listed at no cost, in a program dubbed Yahoo! Smart Phones, Smart Fun!
Ms Mayer said:
” The company is moving away from BlackBerry phones on their enterprise network so that employees can use “devices similar to our users, so we can think and work as the majority of our users do.”
