Click to viewAll the hand-wringing about whether or not the iPhone's suitable for corporate environments is basically being put to rest. It's getting everything a proper drone phone needs: push email, push calendar, push contacts, global address list, Cisco VPN, certificates and identities, WPA2/ 802.1x, security policies, device configuration and Remote Wipe. Plus, the biggie: Exchange support built into the native mail, calendar and contact apps, with on/off toggles for each of them under the Exchange server tab. Nike and Disney (natch) are talking about using the iPhone's corporate ActiveSync support. Will your corporate overlords?
Why would my company buy devices for staff that allow them to download videos and music to their corporate phone? Most companies purposefully turn off the media features of the BlackBerry on staff because they do not want trouble tickets on those issues. Is it reasonable to think that corporations are going to ignore these features on the iPhone and buy them for staff anyway? Some might. I am guessing that most will not.
