U.S. Census Bureau replacing 1200 BlackBerry’s with iPhones

Last updated:

The U.S. Census Bureau plans to purchase 1,200 iPhones for field workers to fill out surveys of American citizens, contracting documents show.

The iPhone pilot is the first step toward a bring-your-own-device plan that will result in census workers using their own smartphones for surveys with the government supplying only the software.

The Census Bureau currently furnishes field surveyors with 1,200 BlackBerrys, which it intends to phase out over the next six months, according to Let's Connect!
