Anyone who hasn’t heard about the next generation of the iPhone must have been living on a desert island or in a deep coma. However, what’s really starting to generate a debate is whether the iPhone can hold its own as a business device.

Most employees would happily trade in their corporate mobile phone for Apple’s latest release, but in the long term, can the iPhone’s functionality really stand up against the business device giants?
Exchange Connector software could be the application to change all that, I reckon. The software enables the customer to hook an iPhone up to an Exchange server, receive push email, and access calendar and contacts information directly from the mobile handset. The rich HTML format means email on a mobile device looks and acts like email on a desktop computer. With support for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, PDF, JPEG and iWork, attachments can be viewed exactly as they were designed to be, which makes the goal of a fully functional mobile office one step closer. This service can be fully synched with a corporate server, which ensures there’s no need to duplicate email management when you’re back in the office.
