An iPhone for the Enterprise

Susan Hall

According to Ars Technica, Apple left no doubt Monday of its commitment to the enterprise with its iPhone 2.0 software.

 

The 3G phone, due out July 11, will come with GPS capabilities. The 8 gigabyte model will sell for $199, according to an Associated Press story on MSNBC.

 

The new phone supports all Microsoft Office and iWork documents. It also offers push e-mail, push contacts, auto-discover, global address lookup, two-factor authentication and its contents can be erased remotely. Apple also teamed with Cisco to build in a secure VPN, the story says. The new software also will be out in July and be free for iPhone owners, reports the Los Angeles Times.

 

The new phone is creating lots of buzz in the blogosphere, as is the next rendition of OS X. Check out the takes by IT Business Edge bloggers Rob Enderle and Arthur Cole on that.

 

Meanwhile, wanting to create some buzz of its own, Samsung introduced its own touchscreen phone, reports InformationWeek.
