US tax dollars at work dept.: TUAW is reporting (via that the Chief Administrative Office of the U.S Congress is testing iPhones due to "people requesting them as an option":

Adoption of the iPhone by the U.S. Congress could be another blow to RIM, which is now behind Apple in terms of sales and revenues. Apple CEO Steve Jobs gleefully reported that "Apple beat RIM" during yesterday's Q4 Earnings Call.

7 Million iPhone sold last quarter alone, and we've already heard rumors of HSBC ditching the Blackberry for the iPhone. Is this the beginning of Something Big, or just a simple case of new technology getting the tires kicked?

What say you, Americans?
