Another One Bites the Dust: Home Depot Ditches BlackBerry for iPhone
Investors and BlackBerry (BBRY) diehards were impressed with the company’s new platform and first two next-generation smartphones when they were unveiled late last month, but not everyone is sticking around to see how the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 pan out. According to a recent report from AllThingsD, Home Depot has decided to ditch BlackBerry and equip approximately 10,000 of its employees with Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone instead. The move would mark the latest in a series of enterprise and government defections over the past year, which included the NOAA, Booz Allen Hamilton and the National Transportation Safety Board. BlackBerry has said recently that more than 1,600 North American companies are trialing BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry shares were trading down more than 2% in Monday’s pre-market session.
