I think the Galaxy S3 has the advantage on this one, as far as features go. If they go with the S3, everyone can use the S beam feature. The pop up video feture would probably come in handy just like the wifi sharing feature.

I'd have my work phone be a Lumia 920 and my personal phone be a Galaxy Note 2 or the Optimus G.
That'd be so perfect.

Nice step. Yahoo! needs to have an Android and iOS app.

Ok maybe I am missing the point but is the author of this article possibly iphone biased? "Last month, Yahoo's new CEO Marissa Mayer put employees on notice that she wanted them to get rid of the BlackBerry handsets they were using for work and switch to the Apple iPhone" Bet the article actually says (Twice) that they have a list of different phones to choose from and not just one!
How un-restricted a phone is and what it is capable of makes my decision rather than which one looks prettier or smoother.

she's really annoying!!! they are doing business not playing around! BlackBerry is still the most superior when it comes to doing email and messaging! and when you need to contact people, BBM is still superior and the fastest way!!!

if she choose to change the company's phone, she should just go for those very capable in messaging and emails!!!

At least they get to choose from some of the top end phones.
