Yahoo CEO does not consider Blackberries as smartphones


Yahoo recently offered to give all their employees free smartphones, with a choice between iPhones, Samsung Galaxy S3’s and Nokia Lumia 920s.

Now Marissa Mayer, Yahoo’s new CEO, has explained why, noting the company had an imperative to move their employees from Blackberries to “smartphones”, suggesting rather strongly and repeatedly that she did not consider those devices to be real smartphones.

During an interview with Fortune’s Patricia Sellers, she explained:

"We literally are moving the company from BlackBerrys to smartphones. One of the really important things for Yahoo’s strategy moving forward is mobile."

Presumably she is not alone, explaining why RIM’s market share in US dropped to only 1.6%.
