EU - EC chooses iPhone, HTC over BlackBerry

The European Commission has opted for the iPhone and HTC handsets over the BlackBerry to roll out to its employees. The search for a new smartphone began in 2008 when the Commission, the European Union's executive arm, was deploying a new synchronization tool, prompting it to evaluate different devices on the market, including BlackBerrys. The EC has been using PDAs made by Q-Tek (later HTC) since 2003.
