Sybase releases iPhone enterprise email solution
Apple has finally found its toehold in the enterprise with iPhone. The only question is much of the rest of the Apple bandwagon gets dragged into the big business maw.

Google's latest moves also put the pressure on Apple
If Google makes this all ad-supported and for all intents and purposes free to me -- and I can start doing more of my sales and marketing outreach using Google services -- well, I'm going to be someday using my Mac Pro for just accessing Google stuff, I guess. Why pay Apple for all those .mac extras?
CES and Macworld amount to zip -- until we get better interplay among the companies controlling the parts
Will 2007 will be year of true convergence between software companies, device makers, and network providers to get me "it"? Will we see any evidence of "it" at CES or Macworld?

So far they all seem to want to keep as much of "it" as they can, to no one's full solution offering.
Sybase demos swift use of iPhone as mobile client to corporate email, calendar, PIM

This is a development to keep an eye on, and may bring iPhone to an influential class of business user sooner than most thought possible.
