Submission Gartner: do not mix business with iPhone

thefickler writes: It may well be the most anticipated mobile phone ever launched, but Gartner vice president, Ken Dulaney, is advising businesses to stay away from Apple's soon-to-be-released iPhone. While Dulaney believes the iPhone is likely to make a major impact on the consumer market, he doesn't believe the new phone has much to offer business.

Dulaney said businesses should avoid the iPhone for a number of reasons, including its high retail price, lack of a firewall, lack of support for Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes, and poor security (data cannot be deleted if the handset is lost, for example).
