Should businesses recycle mobiles in favour of iPhones or BlackBerrys?
16 September 2010 — 4:00 PM
Firms across the country that are considering mobile recycling as a way of freeing up space for new handsets for staff face a tough choice on which model to invest in.
Those produced by BlackBerry have for some time been considered a leading option in the business world, but one expert believes the iPhone is catching up.
Heather Mclean, editor of Mobile Business, says Apple's flagship device is making up ground in the battle to be the corporate choice.
"More companies are switching over to iPhone from more traditionally business functional handsets, like Blackberry and Nokia's Eseries phones," she explains.
One company that has already taken the plunge and invested in iPhones is the international bank Standard Charted, where employees around the world now use the handset.
Bloomberg recently reported that JPMorgan Chase & Co may be about to follow suit by allowing workers to use iPhones.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "Which model would you go for? Whether you’re an iPhone lover or a Blackberry's more your thing, you could trade your old phone in for cash. Then you can choose whichever phone takes your fancy!"
