Apple Pushes Its Envelope Further Than Ever

Includes: AAPL, SY

Sybase (SY) has now released the iAnywhere solution for bringing enterprise emails to the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. We blogged on this just a few days ago.

Based on the reaction, Sybase will get a lot more evaluation for their mobile messaging solution, even though it's designed to work with most all mainstream smartphones.

And my oh my, I just keep seeing more people with iPhones, just about everywhere I go this week in the Bay Area. I'm glad this is panning out as I expected a mere hour after the announcement of the iPhone's pending release.

Apple has finally found its toehold in the enterprise with iPhone. The only question is how much of the rest of the Apple bandwagon gets dragged into the big business maw. I have to say, using Keynote to whip out a preso I'm giving this morning saved my butt. Trying to do it in Powerpoint would have made me miss the point.

Oh, and now Safari runs on Windows, faster than most, and comparable to FireFox 3.x.

Yep, despite the Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT)-funded malarky from some quarters, Apple is pushing its envelope further than ever. Productivity wins after all?
