Marissa Mayer wants to leave BlackBerry behind and get an Apple device for every employee.

BlackBerry is currently the smartphone of choice for employees at Yahoo, however many employees have an iPhone or Android handset as a second phone for personal use.

According to All Things D, new CEO Marissa Mayer (pictured) has declared that iPhones (or potentially Android devices) for everybody is a distinct possibility.

It’ll be expensive (just like her recent statement that there should be free food for staff at Yahoo's larger offices) but it will be popular and keeping all employees on a single platform might help boost productivity.

Regardless of which platform Yahoo decides on, the aim is to improve the bottom line which should make stockholders happy, as well as the manufacturer that gets the contract.
