Default Re: OT (but sort of not): 'BES' for iPad?

ditto what others have said. Exchange server policies can be set to require encryption, remote wipe capability passwords etc. Apple has something called iPhone Configuration utility(IPCU) which will deploy some settings to the device over a USB connection. If you use it a bit and research it, you'll see it is definitely not an enterprise class application. You can set some restrictions, configure wi-fi, put in login credentials for Exchange server etc. If you want centralized management of an IOS device, you'll need to look at some type of MDM...and they are not cheap. This is one area, enterprise use and management, where RIM is way,way,way,way beyond Apple.
