The Chief Administrative Office, which oversees the communications systems for the U.S. House of Representatives, has begun testing a group of iPhones to see if they are compatible with the working needs of lawmakers and staff. According to The Hill, the CAO plans to decide whether to offer the iPhone as an option by January, when the next Congress begins. “The reason we’re trying them out is because we heard a lot of people wanted the option to have them,” said Jeff Ventura, a spokesman for the CAO.

In my opinion this is the worst idea ever. Don’t go with an iphone, especially the iphone 3G. If they want terrible battery life, lack of push email, an annoying keyboard, than go for it.

Solution: Go with a Blackberry.
