ActiveSync arrives on the iPhone

It would seem that Apple have been a busy bee working to make the iPhone more appealing to the discerning business users. Many business people that I know have been held back from the iPhone due to the lack of support for Microsoft Exchange which is found in the MS SmartPhone by means of ActiveSync. However, it seems that Apple have been able to come to an agreement with Microsoft and license the ActiveSync technology for use on the iPhone. So what does this mean? Basically it means that everything that you could sync previously on an MS SmartPhone you can now do on the iPhone which means you can sync contacts, calender, push-email and most important it will support remote wiping of the unit should you part company. All of this adds up to a very interesting product which is likely to be able to gather further momentum and likely leave Microsoft standing in the mobile marketplace.
