I am currently using MS Entourage for address book, calendar, email etc on my mac powerbook and works well with my blackberry via our blackberry enterprise server and MS exchange server. Can anyone help me understand what to expect on how the iPhone could work in-place of my blackberry?
:cool:

As for the blackberry question The iPhone is simmilar in the facts that it has a webbrowser and allows for easy storage of contacts.

As I was looking through iP specs yesterday this was my main question as well. I currently have a Treo 650 and Versamail works well with my MS exchange server. Any idea what the iPhone mail client will be like and whether it will support MS Exchange?

I imagine since Entourage does it's probably a safe bet that iP will too, but given how long it took to get that service integrated into mail, I'm still not sure.

well until we hear about support from third parties and more information on supported files yes. Apple may announce that it will be able to run .docs xmls txt etc then businessses may start using it.

I think the iPhone is going to be more of an entertainment device and not geared towards the businesss folks...

My 2 Cents... :cool:
I agree, you are correct.

The current target market are people that want an entertainment device. Even the phone is somewhat of an add on.

I am curious what you mean by this.

One of the things that impressed me while watching the MacWorld Keynote was the phone implementation. Manipulating contacts, putting calls on hold, merging calls, separating merged calls, activating the speaker phone were all very well implemented IMO. When compared to my WM5 based phone, the iPhone wins hands down.
