This video created a lot of excitement. Personally, I don't understand what the big deal is. There have been ICA clients available for the Blackberry for years, and I don't know anyone who uses them apart from occasional maintenance tasks.

Will people actually use iPhones for their jobs, or will this just be a cool party trick?
