Default Speculation - Kick *** iPhone with Microsoft Exchange Server supporton March 6th

Apple give iPhone support for Microsoft's Exchange server and Lotus
Notes software - Enterprise iPhone
Yesterday, February 29, 2008, 2:54:47 PM |

While we wait for Apple's press event next week, let's speculate on
what we'll hear. We know that "cool new enterprise features" are going
to be part of the "iPhone Software Roadmap," but just what kind of
enterprise features can we expect?

How does some Microsoft's Exchange server and IBM Lotus Notes software
support sound? Sounds nice, doesn't it? Well, Shaw Wu, an American
Technology Research analyst, cites his "industry and developer
sources" who indicate that Apple will unveil some significant business-
oriented software support for the iPhone on March 6th.

We've been pining for Apple to endow the iPhone with Microsoft
Exchange Server support. The iPhone has seen limited success in the
enterprise landscape, mainly because of its lack of business-software.
IBM has already announced its intention to release Lotus Notes email
for the iPhone, so the announcement that Apple will finally bring IBM
into its stable of support software is no big surprise. But, allowing
MS Exchange to work with the iPhone is a huge step, and a pleasant
surprise.

"If true (which we believe is), this will prove key in having more
enterprises and SMB adopt iPhone as their mobile platform," states Wu.
"What isn't as clear to us is how Apple will accomplish this, whether
this is from internal development (most likely), third-parties
including Microsoft (next likely) with its ActiveSync technology, or
Research in Motion Blackberry Connect (possible but less likely), or a
combination of two or more."

Once the iPhone gets some official business support from Apple, the
iPhone could really shine as a true enterprise smartphone. After all,
a ChangeWave survey showed that enterprise customers are more
satisfied with their iPhone than corporate users toting RIM BlackBerry
handsets.

"Nearly three-in-five (59%) of Apple's business customers say their
company is Very Satisfied with the iPhone."

"RIM (maker of the Blackberry) ranks second with a Very Satisfied
rating of 47%, though we note this represents an unusually large 8-pt
decline from the previous survey."

The results make sense, seeing as how 72% of iPhone customers are
satisfied, making the iPhone the top pick in planned purchases.

Let's see what happens on March 6th...

We have Exchange - and have only seen the latest MS "push" technology
available for MS enabled smartphones.
Also - for the Blackberry crowd, we run the BB server... again, a "push"
technology.

For the iPhone to work with a "push" technology like Exchange,
it would have to have the total MS Exchange protocol support... which might
be a stretch for the iPhone.
For those smartphones already running MS Mobile, it's already there,
but to add it to a non-MS phone just to get Exchange support might be a
heavy task.

Looks like we'll hear, "The SDK has been delayed while we rethink how much
this is gonna cost us after it's hacked."

Does that sound about right?.....(c;

Vic, have you tried the freeware movie converter I posted yesterday on the
iPhone? I'm interested to see if it will make movies for iPhones without
the ripoffs.
