Qantas airlines replacing Blackberries with iPhones


Qantas airlines will replace 1300 BlackBerry phones used by employees with iPhones, according to the “Sydney Morning Herald” ( The switch was made after the majority of respondents to a recent staff survey indicated their preference for Apple’s device over the “increasingly unpopular BlackBerry,” the article adds.

“The iPhone offers a user-friendly interface and simple access to emails, contacts and calendars, as well as meeting all Qantas’ security requirements,” a Qantas spokesman told the “Herald.”

Qantas said the move to iPhone could save the company millions of dollars due to better carrier arrangements for mobile data from both Telstra and Optus, as well as simplified support infrastructure.
