Yoni Heisler writes that according to “sources close to the matter,” Apple and Microsoft are currently in talks to make Microsoft’s Bing search engine the default engine on the iPhone.

“According to Business Week, sources close to the matter have said that Apple and Microsoft have been in negotiations over the past few weeks, and even if a deal isn’t ultimately reached, the fact that Apple is considering it underscores just how seriously Apple views the threat from Google and its ever expanding range of products/services.”

Jason D. O’Grady writes why the release date of the Apple tablet could be delayed.

“Neil Hughes at AppleInsider reports that Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu recently told clients that his supply chain sources say that the Apple tablet launch (presumably meaning the shipping date) could be moved to June 2010 due to “minor issues” with ‘more work needed on battery life and durability.’ Wu’s claims contradict The Wall Street Journal, which previously reported that the tablet is expected to ship in March.”

Lenovo, Kaseya Partner on Managed Services

Joe Panettieri shares some details around Lenovo and Kaseya’s recently forged partnership around managed services.

“After studying the managed services market for most of 2009, Lenovo is pulling back the curtain on a software partner strategy. It starts … with a Lenovo-Kaseya relationship, but Lenovo’s efforts will expand to include a range of RMM (remote monitoring and management) and PSA (professional services automation) partners. In my mind, today marks the start of PC vendors getting serious about managed service. I wonder if the Lenovo-Kaseya relationship will be a wake-up call to the rest of the PC industry. For the most part, Hewlett-Packard and Dell have been surprisingly silent about their PC strategies within the MSP market.”
