  20. Some practical concerns • Security continues to be a concern as does better management tools • iPhone downloads the entire attachment, which eats up bandwidth and battery life. • Installing applications requires a desktop installer, which opens up security holes. • Battery life is a problem, particularly because people use their phones for many different applications. 21 Entire contents © 2009 Forrester Research, Inc.
