Today at a Town Hall meeting held at its Cupertino headquarters, Apple unveiled its vision for the future of the iPhone and third-party application development. The first announcement was about the iPhone's new support for the enterprise, including a Microsoft Exchange client. Apple has licensed Active Sync from Microsoft and the iPhone will now support push Exchange email, as well as sync contacts and calendar information. The Exchange client will be built into the iPhone and will be customizable from the mail settings tab, allowing the user to turn on and off certain functions. It will also support enterprise features such as remote device wipe, 802.1x and WPA2 security, enterprise device configuration and Cisco VPN services. These new features won't be available until the 2.0 firmware is available in June.

Who cares? The Iphone is still the most overrated phone built for wanna be PDA phone for dummies.
****CORRECTION****Who cares? The Iphone is still the most overrated wanna be PDA phone for dummies.

well that's a start...

Now if they'll just upgrade to a 3G radio, fix MMS, allow use of any MP3 as a ring tones, allow J2ME apps, and all the other things any decent phone can do, they might actually have a winner on their hands.

I can't imagine apple "allowing" any and all mp3s being used as a ringtone. ONLY the ringtones available through itunes.

Earlier this year the CEO of AT&T said there will be a 3G iphone, probably Version 2.0.

Gosh Apple sure is a super, super co...
I think Jobs said yesterday that they do not intend to allow java to run on the iphone.

I think they think they already have a winner. Lots of people are buying them, so I'm guessing they don't see much of a need to open up everything. Especially...
Add Flash to the list of things people with iPhones don't really want but are being told their phones absolutely need.

"Full" Exchange Support?!?!...LOL


I think it is hilarious that people really think Microsoft is going to offer "full" functionality of their weak, at best, shot at wireless email. Their is only one reason they would even try to work on the IPod with a phone and that is to entice people to switch to Windows Mobile. If you think enterprises are going to support this....ha! Good luck.
