blog Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has achieved notoriety for constantly using his iPad — including in parliament. But, according to tweets from the honourable Member for Wentworth yesterday, up until very recently he’s been using a BlackBerry — like most of the public service.
So why did Turnbull dump his trusty BlackBerry and take up the Apple option? The same reason everyone else has … the iPhone’s stellar web browsing functionality and wide range of third-party software.
However, we hasten to point out, this is one area where Turnbull’s thinking is a little behind that of his opposite, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, who was flirting with the iPhone shortly after it launched in Australia in mid-2008 — describing the device as “a sexy gadget”. Although Conroy has on occasion, suffered recurring ‘technical difficulties’ with his Apple device, we’re sure Turnbull won’t have that problem — his own daughter being fully grown.
