Verizon iPhone 4G/HD Release Date coming soon:iPhone replaces BlackBerry for some bankers

The British bank Standard Chartered is to replace the Blackberry, now a core team of business communication, with the iPhone, a move that could eventually thousands of bankers lead them to change the device Apple-to-business on the way to communicate.

* Standard Chartered switching to iPhone for staff
* Singapore's OCBC gives staff choice of iPhone or Blackberry
* RIM teams up with China Telecom for Blackberry service

Standard Chartered bankers in Asia told Reuters that the London-based lender was giving its corporate Blackberry users the option of switching to the iPhone, with the company agreeing to continue to pay monthly billing for business-related telephone and data services.

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is still the leader in the smartphone segment being solidly established within the corporate sector, and it’s a given that hardcore BlackBerry users will never switch to the iPhone/iPhone 4G, but apparently there are a great deal of “corporate casual users” which given the option would choose the iPhone over BlackBerry.
