Strange decision. Would have thought a Blackberry 9900 with a keyboard and Playbook would have been a much better combination for Journalists. If the Playbook is lost,no info is stored on it,only the phone. Blackberry is much more secure in terms of encription.

I don't think it's a strange choice at all. Blackberry is safest but iPhone has more emphasis on social media. System wide twitter integration and camera/video quality for example.

No real surprise if you compare the droid x to the iphone 4s you can see what one is better.
They should of tried an s2 that would of been better
expandable memory and battery would of done wonders for them.
oh and android has more social integration than the iphone does.

You can pitch to Gannet and not me which phone has better social integration. And I'm sure they know what a Galaxy SII is.
As for expandable memory and battery, I don't really know if most people outside the online community nowadays care about that (I know some do care about expandable memory though). I would think they'd look for large memory and a good battery to begin with.

I'm sure they don't know what a Galaxy SII is.
Businesses copy Apple because they think their fortunes will bring great success.
They are followers.
Example this company knows Apple is successful and a lot of people use iphone's so they believe they will get a lot more views of their media and coverage if they only us Apple products.
It's as bad as when companies use the i infront of their product (which buy the way, I'm surprised Apple didn't patent a letter placement and sue everyone)

Their president must advice them not to drop their iPhones by mistake.
