Apple Snaps Up Enterprise Customers At BlackBerry's Expense
After emerging as the darling of retail customers over the past few years, Apple seems to be hard at work wooing enterprises as well as government bodies. The company recently announced two important wins at Home Depot and the New Zealand government, both of which have come at the expense of BlackBerry. While Home Depot is reportedly replacing 10,000 BlackBerry smartphones with iOS devices, the New Zealand police force plans to arm 6,000 officers with iPhones and about two-third of them with iPads over the next three months. Other notable agencies that have recently announced their BlackBerry to iOS migrations include the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, the National Transportation Safety Board and Australia’s Treasury Department.
