A slew of new Wall Street firms are opening up to the iPhone, according to a report by John Carney at CNBC.
According to Carney, Credit Suisse is working letting its bankers use iPhones, Bank of America has begun phasing in the touch-screen smartphones and Wall Street law firm Skadden Arps lets its lawyers expense their iPhones. According to Carney, prospective hires at big banks used to wave their BlackBerries around to show that they would readily glom onto firm culture. Nowadays, though, there’s no iPhone stigma.
Carney’s report follows a Bloomberg story that said JP Morgan Chase and UBS may allow their employees to access corporate email via iPhone.
