>HSBC and the iPhone


The New York Times reported on August 14th that British Bank HSBC may ditch its relationship with Research in Motion (RIM) for the new Apple iPhone. This may mean a 200,000 purchase of new iPhones for HSBC employees. This move could signal to other companies that the Apple I-Phone is ready for the big leagues. Currently companies favor the Blackberry because of the security of its Blackberry Enterprise server (BES). Apple wants to show the corporate world that the iPhone is just as secure as the Blackberry. If Apple succeeds, then Blackberry should watch out as Apple clearly wants to challenge Blackberry’s dominance as the preferred mobile device of choice for business executives.
