    Politico reports today on another government agency in the US that has decided to replace departmental BlackBerrys with iPhones, following on from NOAA’s decision to do just that. This time it’s the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who have decided to abandon RIM’s handset. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&amp]According to Politico, 60% of the devices that the agency will be replacing the BlackBerrys with will be iPhones. The ATF will begin phasing out BlackBerrys as soon as this March, starting off with 2,400 BlackBerrys that are assigned to special agents in the field, with all of these phones being replaced by iPhones. Politico adds that some BlackBerrys will be replaced with iPads, following a pilot scheme involving 200 iPads.
