Apple iPhone and Daylite
Small Business January 10, 2007 AJ
I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised with the iPhone. With all the hype and the limitations imposed by the carriers, I really wasn’t sure what to expect.
I was lucky enough to see a demo of the phone in action and I must say it is awesome!
I tend to not get excited by gadgets, but this one has me excited.
The interface, the OS, the form factor – it just looks right. (I couldn’t touch it, so no idea of ‘feel’).
Anyways – the big question is Calendar and Contacts from Daylite – can we sync?
Mike, our VP of Engineering, did some digging and the answer is: yes!
As you may know, we’ve been working on Sync Services support and our efforts will pay off by the looks of it.
Our challenge will be getting a phone to test with. We might have to get a little creative in getting one considering it will be available in the U.S. only initially 😉
Ironically we just picked up some Nokia E61’s this past Thursday for Sync Services testing. We where pretty excited about the E61 – for all of 4 days. As cool as it is, the E61 looks so old school now. I wouldn’t have ever thought that something can get so old so quickly.
These are interesting times – the Mac is getting to be a better small business platform.
Until next time…
