    Good article Ron - but IT departments say the same thing about every new device force-fed into companies by executives (and sometimes they're right). Device loss/theft won't be limited to the iPhone, as history has demonstrated. Blackberrys and WinMobile devices have been pwn3d/stolen also - far easier to make it past security with a pocketed device. No amount of bell-and-whistle security features matter if someone can walk off with it. I don't buy the comment that someone will "better protect" a $500 device they paid for as opposed to the laptop they were issued, since it'll probably just be written off as a company expense anyway.
    Those mahogany-row types always want the newest/flashiest toys with sizzle, and they get what they want.
    The iPhone has it in spades.
