New Yahoo CEO and avowed iPhone fan Marissa Mayer wants all Yahoo employees to have a free iPhone, according to a story today on Business Insider, which says that Mayer, who used to use an iPhone even when she was at Google, is so keen on all her employees having their own iPhone, that she is willing to have them all paid for by Yahoo. Two separate sources close to Yahoo employees told Business Insider about Mayer’s intentions. However, also reporting on the story, Kara Swisher at AllThingsD wrote today that Yahoo’s new CEO was asked last week about the possibility of Yahoo switching from its current use of BlackBerrys by its employees (“Yahoo has largely been a BlackBerry work world”), and she apparently mentioned in a recent executive staff meeting that it was indeed possible that all Yahoo employees would be provided with iPhones, although she also mentioned Android devices as well. No concrete confirmation as yet though.
