The White House Communications Agency has to decide which of the two will be used for the official government communication

Blackberry might have ruled the mobile industry for quite some time and for a very long time it remained at the top. Unfortunately, things started to change for the Canadian company with time and now even the appointment of a new CEO hasnt made things better. However, things are not so bad after all because the company has secured its position with one field and that is enterpeise. Many businesses still prefer to use BlackBerrys because of the advanced security features. But the bad news is that the major client, White House, is now shifting towards LG or Samsung.

We all are aware of the popular tag Research in Motion which had been associated with BlackBerry for quite some time and this was an effort towards making things better for the company. But this, coupled with the appointment of the new CEO John Chen, did little to help the ship which is slowly sinking in the waters. However, there are still instances of hope for the name to reclaim its former glory and some of the efforts of the new CEO include this new tagline and the introduction of the proprietary BBM instant-messaging service to both iOS and Android.

But the White House news comes as a huge blow to the company as they continue to test newer LG and Samsung devices. This has brought in a lot of attention to the two mobile phone companies and this takes care of most of their advertisement problems. The White House Communications Agency is considering the two companies and the final decision has to be made about which one of these two will form the official medium of governmental communication but this decision seems to be months away.
