IBM takes on Google Apps with iNotes

Taking advantage of some very public GMail outages this month – IBM promises hosted email that is more reliable with its iNotes service.  The list of supported browsers has always been my chief complaint with iNotes (appended below).

IBM Launches iNotes, a Gmail Competitor for Business

Still, since Lotus is the lower-priced solution, that alone may be enough for them to compete. Google Apps currently charges $50 per user per year but iNotes will be only $36. Those cost savings combined with the brand recognition of the IBM name will help iNotes quickly get in the game.
