This should improve the likelihood of IT directors being able to buy line-of-business mobile applications for the Microsoft platform. More than 10,000 developers are currently working on applications for Windows Mobile 5.0. Part of the reason for this developer momentum is Microsoft's programming model. Nick Jones, vice-president at analyst firm Gartner, said, "Every device using Windows Mobile 5.0 has the same interfaces, but that is absolutely not the case with other operating systems, such as Symbian."</i><br /><br />This article takes a look at Enterprise Mobility and what Gartner is saying about the choices you have available today along with their strengths and weaknesses. Can you guess who Gartner recommends? ;)
