Good news for IBM Lotus users, Big Blue will bring an iPhone-compatible version of its Lotus Domino Web Access suite to the App Store later this year. The software, dubbed "Lotus iNotes," will allow businesses that utilize Lotus Domino Server to provide their users access to contacts, e-mail and calendars.
No firm release date has been set, though screenshots (which are not final and subject to change) and tentative information is available at IBM's Lotus Domino Web Access site.
Lotus iNotes is just one of the new mobile strategies IBM will be deploying in the coming months, as it looks to stave off competition from Microsoft.
And while Lotus might not be the sexiest collaboration software around, it is used by millions upon millions of people worldwide. IBM's support of the iPhone could really propel corporations to adopt, or at least consider supporting, the iPhone in IT environments.
