Congress house members want iPhones

The Chief Administrative Office (CAO), which oversees the communications systems for the House, has begun testing a small number of iPhones within its ranks to see if they are compatible with the working needs of lawmakers and staff.

"The reason we’re trying them out is because we heard a lot of people wanted the option to have them," said Jeff Ventura, a spokesman for the CAO.

On a more serious note, this could represent another blow for RIM and the BlackBerry if the iPhone is adopted by Congress. Currently the House is home to 8,200 BlackBerry devices.

You know, Apple could be onto something with that iPhone thing! :-)
