    Although sought out by high-end consumers, Apple products have never been accepted widely by business, so major corporate adoption of the iPhone would be a breakthrough.

    "It's fun," de la Cruz said in Boston at an industry conference earlier this week. "It's so popular."

    Indeed, it is popular enough that software makers such as SAP, Salesforce.com Inc (CRM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) and scores of smaller developers are letting sales and finance teams work away from the office on their iPhones.

    On Monday, SAP broke with precedent by saying it would introduce a version of its upcoming customer relationship management software for the iPhone before launching versions for mobile devices from RIM and Palm Inc (PALM.O: Quote, Profile, Research).

    The reason? SAP's own salespeople were clamoring for it, saying the iPhone was easier to use, according to Bob Stutz, SAP senior vice president in charge of developing customer relationship management software.

    Apple’s newest store in New York redefines retail – again
    Apple say that the initial sale isn’t the end of the transaction as it essentially is in other major computer stores, such as Best Buy, Circuit City or others. Apple say that the initial sale is just the beginning of your relationship with Apple, with customers welcome to come in and learn from Apple’s own designated experts, technicians and teachers.

    To make sure the store has enough staff to handle the volume of customers this very large store could handle, Apple has hired a whopping 175 staff, which is spilt into Mac Specialists, Genuises, Creatives and Apple Store Concierges (with concierges always in a blue shirt), with whom customers are able to see in store or also by making a pre-booking with.

    Apple sells US$4,000 worth of stock per sqft of retail sales space in its stores which is the highest of any high street store in the US.
