In what can come as one more jolt for Research in Motion is that White House is looking for LG and Samsung smartphones as a replacement to the BlackBerry phones for its employees. A report in the Wall Street Journal shows that BlackBerry might lose its platform from White House as well!
The WSJ report shows that the test for new OS for the employees are in their preliminary stage as a spokesperson from the Department of Defense was quoted saying that White House “is piloting and using a variety of mobile devices”. Few rumors show that Apple’s iOS has been dismissed from testing plans because of some unspecified limitations even though it being a personal choice of President Barack Obama.
After the testing ends, the picture will be more clear as to whether BlackBerry has still a chance to stay in!
