In news I didn’t expect to hear for quite awhile, the iPhone is starting to make some noise in the corporate sector. Standard Chartered is offering 75,000 employees the opportunity to ditch their Blackberry’s for one of Apple’s luxurious devices, though is one company really enough to break news for? Sure, if that company is involved in global initiate to get other banks to follow through. RIM might not have anything to worry about after all, but this should raise an eyebrow at what could be a future trend. While we won’t see the iPhone’s best enterprise features until OS 4.0 is available to the public, it’ll be interesting to see what effect that has, if any, on our corporate overlords.
