What will the "new enterprise features" of Apple's iPhone be, and does the use of the phrase by Apple in a recent invite mean that the next great enterprise smartphone battle will be between iPhone and RIM BlackBerry?
"Just got an email from Apple PR. The company is going to announce its plans on the iPhone SDK at the Apple campus on March 6.The email invitation says: 'Please join us to learn about the iPhone software roadmap, including the iPhone SDK and some exciting new enterprise features.' Those enterprise features probably involve some level of support for Microsoft Exchange above and beyond simple IMAP support, which has been the one big feature requested since Day one. I’ll be curious to see what else in the enterprise category that Apple has on tap."One immediate question raised was the question of whether companies would in reality put up with a special server for iPhones while still supporting BlackBerries. One suggestion was that Apple's best strategy would perhaps be to license a BlackBerry client from RIM.
