In order to update the outlook calendar you just connect the iphone to your computer.
In June there will be exchange support added, I believe through the use of active sync. Once that is available and they add 3g, I will pick one up.
Yeah but the issue is that do you really want to put all your compnay emails on iphone? It's not secure at all. What happens if you lose it? Passwords on iphone doesn't mean anything. Anyone can hack into it. Plus if you are a power email user (which i would thinks so if you use it for corporate), iphone is definitely not enough. It's too limited and has many little quirks that just makes it not user-friendly. Only thing it does is provide you with the convenience of email access on the road, but you can't do much with it. BlackBerry's can do pretty much anythign you can do on Outlook or Notes + wireless sync of calendars, contacts, tasks, etc. Just can't beat that. If you guys ever see the Blackberry enterprise server and what it can do, you'd undertstand iphone has no chance when it comes to competing in the corporate world regardless of the new exchange support.
With that said, I still love my iphone. I think it's the best consumer phone i've ever had.
