    Home Depot abandoning BlackBerry platform in favor iPhone and iOS

    Home improvement retailer Home Depot plans to replace thousands of BlackBerry smartphones issued to its managerial and corporate staffers with versions of Apple's iPhone 4S, AppleInsider has learned.

    People familiar with the big-box retailer's plans said the company has already begun the process of abandoning the Blackberry platform for Apple's iOS, specifically for store managers and all corporate level employees.

    A representative for the home improvement chain confirmed the news to AppleInsider, saying the move will displace roughly 10,000 Blackberry smartphones.

    "We are replacing our current base of BlackBerry technology with iPhones," the representative said, clarifying that the move applies only to store managers, district managers, other corporate-level staffers, and field ops.
