iPhones chosen by businesses 'because they are popular'

Mobile phone recycling could favour the iPhone

Businesses thinking of taking up mobile phone recycling schemes could increasingly look towards the Apple iPhone to replace old handsets.

Andy Betts, editor of Smartphone Daily, claims that companies are choosing to give the device out to employees as business phones because staff are already familiar with them.

"Traditionally, businesses would provide devices that the users weren't particularly happy with. The iPhone is a popular device, so businesses are now trying to provide something that offers a more satisfactory user experience," he explained.

Mr Betts added that the iPhone is giving BlackBerry some competition in the business handset market, with the latter firm having dominated the corporate sector for the past few years thanks to its Enterprise Server Express Service.

Reuters recently reported that UK bank Standard Chartered is replacing the BlackBerry as its usual corporate communications device with the iPhone, which could result in more finance professionals using the handset.
