IMO that article was lame in the manner it came up with "10" reasons. It's entitled 10 reasons IT should not support the Apple iPhone yet several of the reasons have little or nothing to do with either IT or support. Sounds like someone had an agenda and crafted an article to fit that agenda.

bias article but some of the points are valid. information security is a big issue for compaines right now and not being able to lock a lost phone is a concern.

Exactly! As I was reading that joke...err article...I was wondering what a tactile keyboard has to do with IT support.

I always laugh when people say it "lacks" a real keyboard. The truth is that most smartphones lack a touchscreen keyboard. Duh :p

Short battery life? Are they kidding me? My Moto Q would do just over 8 hours with email push and some phone use. I get almost 2 days with the iPhone and checking email every 15 minutes with WiFi and bluetooth on all the time.

The no keyboard remark is just dumb, numbers 7 and 10 are equally stupid. I use my iPhone more than the Q because it's easier to use and I don't have 3rd party programs hogging up the memory. Also...as if if IT is going to support third party apps! Most companies don't even let people install software on their PCs so that is another go-nowhere argument.

The part about disabling the phone...why not just change the email password if you lose your phone? Call AT&T and also have the phone deactivated, they should be able to figure that one out...

Really, this is just a silly article with half-truths.

lol! you got there first this time Mike- I was thinking the same, I bet it took a long time to think up the last 4 or 5.

There are some valid points in there though. I'd want Apple to introduce it's superb filevault for iPhone and give me a multi-user environment before I'd be comfortable letting all my users have them.

Oh no - they already have them. Never mind eh! But if I was running the IT for a firm of Lawyers I can't see how I could allow corporate iPhones just yet.

This would be a simple set of mods for Apple to be able to bring about a hardened iPhone.
