Restricting only iPhone through Active Sync

I have a group of users who have OMA enabled.
They are using iPhone for accessing emails. Is there any way we can restrict just iPhone in Active Sync?
I dont want any one connecting to my exchange using any other mobile which supports active sync.

Thanks

Any other option? or any third party tool?

Are you reverse proxing through ISA?  I've setup ActiveSync through ISA before such that users need to be a member of an AD group in order to use ActiveSync (rather than all users).  It would require you to manage a group in AD containing all of your iPhone user mailboxes (and not prevent them from using another device) but will allow you to manage who is using ActiveSync.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Good suggestion jebeckham.
I am pretty clear on that part. By default, users wont have active sync enabled.

My only worry is how to make sure that company provided iPhone is only used to connect to our network.

Thanks

Right, corporate management of iPhones becomes challenging rather quickly, particularly if you're using Exchange Server 2003 on the back-end.

Short answer is that you can't restrict Activrsync devices on Exchange 2003.  You can on Exchange 2010 happily, but until you migrate, you can only allow or disallow activesync to specific users.
