"The capability of Windows Mobile to create Office documents is pretty powerful," Hazelton says.

And without support for Microsoft Exchange or IBM's Lotus Notes, iPhone users don't presently have a secure way to get work email."

end quote

How many people edit Office documents on their phones?

MS Exchange is fully accessible by the web if enabled. I wonder how many employees can only access their email if they are running an exchange client. If you are using a web browser (as I do) it does not matter.

"I know we have some salespeople who are very intrigued by the iPhone and would love to be able to use it," Walters says. IPhone's GPS-enabled map feature has particularly caught the attention of salespeople who visit electronics stores that are DirecTV resellers.Oy vey. :: hand on face :: It's at that point that the entire article, for good or bad, suddenly becomes "blah, blah, blah", unless it begins talking about "common misunderstandings" or something. This article reads like a regurgitation of popular commentary about the phone. That's not very good reading.

Maybe it's simply because all other phone interfaces are pure garbage? In my opinion Sony Ericsson's are most useable but the iPhone kills even that.
