IT Pro website has an interesting article noting the iPhone may be too risky for UK Government departments. Apple have not responded to the article however it seems the real reason for the iPhone being “banned” is because, the CESG* only approves phones that have been submitted to it, and Apple have not submitted the iPhone to them. For now the only safe smartphone for them is the blackberry.
What about your company, still on the blackberry, any plans to use the iPhone?
