Iphone overload ?

Never thought I’d see this from IBM and Apple but

“E-mail software from IBM Corp. will be available on Apple Inc. iPhones and iPod Touch devices under a new partnership that brings together two big rivals of Microsoft Corp.

IBM plans a formal announcement of the Lotus Notes e-mail package for Apple’s portable devices at its Lotusphere conference in Orlando, Fla., next week. The software, which requires use of IBM’s Domino e-mail server program, will be free for users who already have a Lotus Web-access license and start at $39 per year for new users.”

So finally Apple are realising that they need the “corporate” users with their Iphones on board as well. It remains to be seen how good the app is and what other nice things appear in February when the “opening” of the Iphone is to occur but it could be a shot in the arm for Lotus/IBM and Notes 8 to get the latest gadget supporting their product.
