Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer offering every employee a free Nokia Lumia 920 or other smartphone

"We'd like our employees to have devices similar to our users, so we can think and work as the majority of our users do."

Said By: Marissa Mayer (CEO Yahoo)

Yahoo CEO, Marissa Mayer, has kicked off a new endeavor at Yahoo in which all employees will receive their choice of a free smartphone, including the Nokia Lumia 920. The program called "Yahoo! Smart Phones, Smart Fun!" is intended to get workers using the same technologies as their customers and was announced to Yahoo employees across 22 countries in a memo.

Yahoo workers will get to choose from the Nokia Lumia 920, iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, and HTC EVO 4G LTE and will cover the corresponding monthly voice and data plans as well. In a blow to RIM, Yahoo has made it part of their IT policy to no longer support Blackberries.

Yahoo is the second big company in the past couple of days to offer employees free smartphones. Microsoft just held a huge company event where they announced that workers would be receiving new PCs, Microsoft Surface tablets and Windows Phone 8 devices.
