I am one of those two people still not owning an iPhone (sniff), but RoamBi [roambi.com] might ultimately change my mind. RoamBi (short for 'roaming business intelligence') aims to transform existing datasets from a variety of sources into interactive visualizations for the iPhone. Its design beautifully merges the typical shiny and slick iPhone interface graphics with a more serious and dark business application visual style. Try "spinning" the pie charts, or tap the line graphs, either from your own iPhone or the online simulator.
Online publishers can submit reports and data from a wide range of applications, including Excel, salesforce.com, WebIntelligence and Crystal Reports, to publish dynamic visualizations and share them with friends, co-workers and employees. The service also includes a Web publisher where individual operators or corporate employees can import reports in 4 different visual templates: the pie chart, graph, card file, or list. The data can then be emailed to the phone or pushed through the RoamBi account.
The RoamBi viewer itself, and its individual usage, is currently free, so I suppose the business model focuses on large corporate clients who will need to pay for uploading data, creating the visualizations, or sharing them with others.
