Weigh in: Is D.C. a Blackberry town?
Everywhere you look in the region -- if you take your eyes off your smartphone -- people seem to be on BlackBerrys. But in other big cites -- such as New York -- people seem to be on iPhones. Does that difference really exist?
So we're wondering: Do you think this is a BlackBerry town? Why? Our reporting begins with some digital bread crumbs: The government, for instance, is all BlackBerry --- largely for security reasons. But other big employers around the region are also heavy BlackBerry purchasers -- why?
It could be a cultural thing, right? Does the government's dominance in the BlackBerry world spread like a virus to other employers around the region that interact with bureaucrats?
We're eager to hear from readers about what the smartphone policies are where you work. Are employees pushing for more iPhones? Or are we too sophisticated (or boring) for the App World? Tell us about the decisions you've made or that you've observed in your workplace--and let us know your thoughts about what BlackBerry's dominance in this region says about the nature and culture of Washington--on the comment boards below and in our reader survey:
