    A few things in the media this morning:

    HTC Evo 4G is taking a big hit on the web. It appears that the new smart phone is literally falling apart on users. Apparently the glass is separating from the frame.

    Pundits are lauding the introduction of the new iPhone and iOS as redefining the smart phone again.
    That a new way of using smart phones is developed with each generation, it makes one wonder when will it cease to happen?

    From MacWorld; Varian Medical is planning on transitioning from Blackberries to iPhones and possibly iPads after the introduction of iOS4. In fact, many of the corporate IT people are looking with pleasure at the new business friendly aspects of the iPhone. Varian Medical is a manufacturer of medical devices and software for hospitals and clinics in 60 countries. Right now they are supporting iphones for about a third of their mobile devices, but will not authorize their 1600 tech support personnel to use them. After a 6 month zip around the world to touch base with all their locations, they expect to begin the full transition.

    I believe that the HTC problems is more of a result of manufacturing quality than the design of the device itself. It would seem that most brands are manufactured in the same factories.

    Facetime is nice but you need a WiFi connection to use it. When 4G is widely deployed and the iPad has built in cameras you will see the heavy adoption of it in the corporate environment.

    The biggest thing that Apple did to give itself smartphone market share for business users was MS Exchange connectivity.
