Following the debut of the Apple iPhone, business customers were left out in the cold due to the lack of support for their corporate infrastructure. With IBM set to debut its Lotus notes for the iPhone and iPod iTouch, it seems as if 2008 will initiate a multitude of support especially with the release of the iPhone Software Development Kit.
Now, AT&T is rumored to offer the iPhone to their corporate and business customers as reported by rumor site Boy Genius Report. The process is said to include a pre-activation process as well as a mandatory data plan, but details are sparse. Complete coverage of this offering will be on PhoneNews.com as soon as it hits the wire on January 21st.
Update: The new business plans are now available. Data has increased from $20 to $45, still including 200 SMS messages. International data add-ons are also available with similar increases. Business customers must maintain both a voice and data plan, similar to consumer iPhone accounts.
