HSBC to drop BlackBerry in favor of iPhone?


Global banking giant HSBC is currently evaluating the iPhone “from a HSBC Group perspective” and if things go well, ZDNet Australia the company may place an order for 200,000 iPhone’s.

That doesn’t mean 200,000 new hires, means that 200,000 BlackBerry’s would be replaced and that would be bad news for BlackBerry maker RIM.

Brenton Hush, CIO for HSBC in Australia and New Zealand, was quick to point out that they “always explore the potential application of new technologies and this is no different” sho really it could be much ado about nothing, but I’m sure RIM is keeping a close watch on this.
