Irish government swapping BlackBerry for Apple iPhone and Android models
In another change, the House also scrapped plans to buy 300 Apple iPads at a cost of €150,000 ($197,000 USD) and €200,000 ($262,800 USD). Saying that it was too costly, the government got together with Vodafone to purchase the tablets at a wholesale price and will sell them to Senator's and Teachta Dála's in the House of the Oireachtas. The government wants the tablets to be able to "print on demand" parliamentary documents.
The move by the Irish government away from BlackBerry handsets follows similar moves made by governments in the U.S., U.K. and Uganda.
