J.P. Morgan Considers iPhone for Corporate Email5:00 pm on September 12, 2010 | Category: Cell Phones, Email, Mobile Devices
American financial services giant, J.P. Morgan, is reportedly testing the Apple iPhone as a potential replacement for Research In Motion’s BlackBerry device.
The company is trying to determine if the iPhone meets its standards for email security, according to sources familiar with the matter. If the trials go well, J.P. Morgan may allow its employees to use iPhones instead of BlackBerrys for business email, provided that they buy the Apple device themselves.
The move in favour of the iPhone is apparently motivated by employee preference, as well as a desire for cost savings.
If major investment banks begin opening the door to non-BlackBerry devices, troubled smartphone giant Research In Motion stands to continue losing market share and investor confidence.
