First, a point of clarification: I take "business user" and "enterprise user" to be two very different things. I'm a business user and nothing at all to do with an enterprise user. I'm talking about people doing buisness "stuff" on it as a main use as opposed to a kid using it to call their buddies, IMiing and watching videos. I'm not talking corporations deploying them worldwide.
Did you see the original post that started that conversation?
I said that the exchange email access would have to be handled and Office apps needed to be added. I pointed out that since it's running at least some flavor of OSX that this should be able to be handled. I don't think I explicitly mentioned it, but my assumption was that this could be 3rd party, which would require Apple opening up the platform.
I mentioned Wifi only because it was a particular differentiator between it and other smartphones. Notice that everyone around here seems to be saying that "my Treo already does all that"? That's meant to be a negative comment about the features of the iphone, but it also means it has everything (capability-wise, not the keyboard, removable battery, SD slot, etc) that makes, say the 650 a good business phone.
So I do not think that this is a buisness phone by your definition and no, that's not the main target market at all. But if you use my definition of "business user" and not "enterprise user", don't you think it's pretty close?

The review of the Cingular 750 puts talk time at 4 hours...
Not that it makes it any better at all, but I replaced the battery in my iPod myself with very little hassle. I still wish it had a removable battery obviously though
Did anyone else read that they might have put two batteries in it, one for the phone and one for the iPod side? I can't remember where I saw that... maybe just someone fantasizing, but it would be a good reason as to why they didn't/couldn't do a removable battery.

i have never owned a TREO, currently a Dash user....but love the Treo line mainly for the touch screen. what frustrates me is the lack of a thin device by Palm. i remember when the 680 was being rumored people were asking if it would be substantially thinner then current Teos. in one of the vids released, i remember some project manager saying the software needed for touch screen was what caused the Treos to be so thick....the iphone has obviously figured something out.

Good report. Colligan did not say much and was neither terse nor coherent. On the other hand, he skillfully did not say much. More specifically, he skillfully did not dismiss Apple's iPhone announcement in the manner suggested by earlier reports.
