A firm-issued iPhone?

Secretly (or not-so-secretly) hope that your firm is the first to adopt the iPhone to replace the Blackberry?  

Apple's taken one step closer to allowing that to happen today when it announced the beta version of "Enterprise" - software that makes the iPhone work with your firm's existing email and calendar exchange servers.

I'm a huge fan of the iPhone's interface - especially the web browser.  I have yet to find one that's as intuitive or effective at capturing what the site is actually supposed to look like.

Big downside in this realm, of course, will be the lack of a real keyboard.  Hopefully through beta testing Apple will address this issue (such as allowing you to turn it sideways for a wider keyboard when sending emails).

Maybe ready by September 2009?  Please?

As a Yang to this Ying (or a ying to this yang?), here's a mini-post on Microsoft.

Evidently there's a great deal on Office software for Windows if you're a student.

Here's the link to the "Ultimate Steal".

The link says it's still in beta. My firm sure isn't going to be a guinea pig for this.

Call me when they've got a released version.

I think the better exercise is to speculate as to which firm will be the first to adopt iPhones. I mean that's like practically bumping up the salaries of associates, so they have to be audacious (and profitable). But at the same time it's an apple product, so they have to be a bunch of hipsters running the place.
