O2 Germany urging their Blackberry using employees to switch to Windows Phones

imageAn internal O2 memo has leaked out today and while the most of it deals with the new Mein O2 app, the last few lines of the memo is pretty interesting.

We wrote a while ago that O2 Germany would be replacing their Blackberry phones with Windows Phones.

In the latest leaked memo, posted by WPArea.de, they write:

Still with BlackBerry on the go?

If you do not want to use a  BlackBerry as a phone service, it is now high time to replace them. You have the choice between the three smartphones Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia Lumia 925 and Nokia Lumia 625. You can find all the details of the Exchange in the intranet.

Replacing Blackberry’s enterprise installed base likely represents several million sales over the next few months, and Microsoft and Nokia are planning to aggressively pursue this market, according to a recent report. Moves such as the above by O2 Germany, which is expected to spread to Telefonica’s other markets, should help Windows Phone momentum in the third and 4th quarter significantly.

Thanks Susanna for the tip.
