IBM to Bring Lotus Notes to iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac

At its Lotusphere conference next week, IBM will announce the release of its Lotus Notes email software for the iPhone and iPod touch, according to an Associated Press article. The company will also issue it, along with the free Lotus Symphony suite, for Mac OS X. Lotus Symphony includes documents, spreadsheets, and other functionality similar to Microsoft Office.
IBM spokesman Mike Azzi told the AP that his company and Apple "have a lot in common. We're going to cross-pollinate."Lotus Notes requires use of IBM's Domino email server, and it will be free to those who have a Lotus Web access license. New users will need to pay fees that start at US$39 annually.
