      Because the blackberry is a businessman's phone. The iphone is more of a toy.

      So much for the digital revolution!
      Does it really improve the quality of life?
      Do these senators actually know how to operate them or is it a case of mine is bigger/better than yours is!

      Uh-oh... someone's battery is low at bottom middle. Also, some poor soul has the worst blackberry ever at bottom left ;)

      It's not that surprising to see so many blackberries, I am kinda surprised to see different carriers though. I would think there'd be a big contract for all of these with one vendor or another. But not having everyone on the same carrier has it's own perks too.

      I love that someone also brought (and had to leave outside) a point & shoot camera. :-)

      simply put, blackberrys suit security conscious IT. iphones rather suit personal, freelance, or startup/small org requirements. it is comparable to the divide between private and public cloud.
      given that this is the US, no surprise that we see such a variety of carriers. the US government is well known for siloed/stovepiped operations.
