The Jesusphone has landed

Update: I have 1442 unread messages in my feed reader. The iPhone tells me I played 8h 46m today. That is a pretty strong statement, isn't it?


Actually, shouldn't you call it the BuddaPhone instead...) ;)

I am really curious to hear how it integrates in your 'BB/Notes driven real corporate world', Volker. :-)

Martin Kautz, 2007-11-17

Does it walk on water? ;-)

Philipp Sury, 2007-11-17

Philipp, I am so not trying.

Martin, it does not integrate in the corporate world at all.

Volker, show me the way how to search for emails. ;-)

I found it amusing that T-Inmobile put a iPhone flyer in our business package invoice, even though they don't offer a iPhone business rate.

Well, they do, of sorts. At they quote you the personal rate without VAT. :-)

I swear that I can read your blurred serial and phone number. Suggest you blur it some more...

Andy Mell, 2007-11-17

No worries, Andy. Even if you get it completely right, there is hardly anything you can do with it. And if you do, I'm sure Apple can handle its property very well. ;-)

Regarding corporate stuff: Let's see what happens in February... If the iPhone really adopts that much of Cocoa, it's only a matter of time 'til 'corporate integration' will be better...

Today, I went to the "T-Punkt" to get my hands on it for the first time. It may quiet personal, but surprisingly I got lost really fast within all the icons & (web)apps. Maybe, I am too old for so radical changes... :-)

The corporate mindset it to police their employees as if they were small children. Control the applications that they can run, the sites they may see, the amount of mail they may keep, how often they need to change their passwords, how quickly the device locks up. The iPhone does not support any of these features.

Is there anything that integrates into that 'BB/Notes driven real corporate world', anyway? While Apple is proprietary in a good mannered way, Lotus is so in a bad-mannered form. Just my experiences. I still need 2 phones to be able to have all my group- (aka Lotus) and "private" aka iCal calendars up-to-date.

Just at the moment, an additional hiccup caused by Leo (no "Missing Sync" availability for Leopard) adds some spice.....

Armin Roth, 2007-11-19

Come to think of it, maybe it´s me who doesn´t integrate either into the 'BB/Notes driven real corporate world' in the end... ;-)

Armin Roth, 2007-11-19

Armin, what phones are you using? Although Missing Sync is said to not work on Leopard I'm able to sync my Palm and my BlackBerry just fine with the latest releases. Ok, there are some issues as stated on their web site but so far they're not affecting me (at least not that I'd have noticed).
