Tony Abbott Still Uses a BlackBerry

Josh Taylor:

While the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet now only issues iPhones, one hold out from moving away from BlackBerry is the Prime Minister himself, while most government agencies are leaning towards iPhone or Android as the standard-issue device for ministers.

Oh man, this explains a lot.

(Josh is also about to move on from ZDNet to work at Crikey. Well done, and good luck with the new gig!)
