Apple iPhone and Daylite

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…
