Home Depot Gets Rid of BlackBerry Platform in Favor of the IPhone

There's a huge number of Home Depot stores all around the country. The stores are staffed with thousands and thousands of administrators and other employees. Home Depot also has a number of corporate employees and all of those managers and corporate workers are currently using BlackBerry smartphones. Home Depot has announced that it will be ditching the BlackBerry platform.

Roughly 10,000 BlackBerry smartphones will be eliminated across the Home Depot franchise. Those devices will be replaced with iPhones. The change applies to store managers, district managers, and other corporate-level staff members and people who work in the field.

What that means is most employees in each store the use mobile phones will continue to use the same device. Home Depot isn't the only major corporate customer that has moved from the BlackBerry smartphone to the iPhone or Android devices, but it is the latest.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
