Internal applications for iPhone and Windows Mobile devices

Hi

We are using Blackberry, Windows Mobile and iPhones for mobile messaging. Blackberry using BES 4.1.7 and WM/ iPhones using Exchange ActiveSync. With Blackberry, we deploy several applications using software configurations. These apps connect to internal servers within our network to provide users with internal apps on their mobiles.

We'd like to do the same for WM/ iPhones too. Does anyone know how we can do this? From what I understand, any apps on the iPhone must be downloaded via the App Store. But even if we could get around that how do we connect them to internal servers? Likewise for Windows Mobile?

it depends on the app itself. most apps that allow you to connect to a server allow you to enter the address of the server you want to connect to. if the app connects to a central server somewhere you're a bit stuck

as for installing the apps, you can only download/install apps outside of the app-store if the phone is 'jail-broken', which I wouldn't recommend in an enterprise environment.
