10 ways Apple can make the iPhone a killer business device
Computerworld : "After the release of the iPhone 3G (and the iPhone 2.0 update for first-generation iPhones), I reviewed the challenges facing corporate IT departments integrating the iPhone as a business device. In that three-part series, I looked at how to handle mass iPhone configuration and deployments, how to configure the iPhone to function in an Exchange environment, and the issues and rewards involved in developing custom in-house iPhone apps.
One thing became clear: The iPhone is unique. While it offers numerous features, its origins as a consumer device still leave in place a number of challenges when adopting it in the enterprise."
Nice writeup there.
Apple is gonna have to do all that an a lot of shaking to shed the "entertainment device" rep. Great device, but I think the same thing that makes it popular hurts its business adaptability. It is trendy.
A quote from the article
I have been saying that from the beginning. It is a great toy.
To succeed, Apple will need to prove that the iPhone is more than a media player or a toy.

If ur looking for a real smartphone, damn even the old Treo680 is a lot better.
The fact that has been making the iPhone a cool gadget is fashion. We all have to face it: its a really good looking phone, and iPod at the same time, but that's it. No more
