Just a quick poll to gauge the community's interest in the various mobile/handheld sync options. Please select the option you care about the most. If you want an option that's not listed please post a comment in the thread.
Windows Mobile/Pocket PC
I thought the Palm Treo 650 could also use SyncML? I've voted for Palm sync but if it does SyncML I'd vote for whichever is the best.
If you go with SyncML, at least make it very clear on how to get that working with Palm, and hopefully not dependent upon VersaMail. I've been using ChatterEmail on the Palm and it's a huge step forward. Of course, it doesn't handle contacts/calendar, but does VersaMail?
I've chosen one as requested, but unfortunately, I need to support Palms, Pocket PCs, Treos, and BlackBerries with Mac, Linux, and Windows desktops, so... Thanks for anything and everythingOriginally Posted by KevinH
The heading says it all, unfortunaltely I have to vote for pocket pc because the business world currently revolves around around these two apps.
While many of us (including me) are either developers, or come from an I.T. background, most businesspeople do not.
So while I personally have a phone running Windows CE 4.2 with a custom graphical shell, which syncs with ActiveSync, and other IT people often have SmartPhones, Palm OS devices, etc., the single biggest device I see being used by decision-makers in the business world are Blackberry/RIM devices.
Now that the Blackberry-NTP fight is over, RIM is only going to increase the number of subscribers they have (which is in the *millions* already). I think that the new Treo 7xx series, which runs a version of Win Mobile (aka CE) might make a dent in that, but for now, the executive class in most enterprises use blackberries - and Exchange's ability to sync with Blackberry over-the-air (including access to contacts/calendar) is a huge selling point with them.
A current client of mine, (200+ users in small offices on 4 contintents), just finally moved from POP3 to Exchange, partly because the Regional RDs and CEO & CFO are all crackberry addicts. And... there went about $35,000 (including hardware, I think). Exchange's connection over http (which is native for Zimbra) was another selling point, since these guys are country-hopping constantly.
I voted for Blackberry, not because I have one, but because that's what everybody I will need to support uses, and wants.
Could not have said it better .. Its enteresting the the iSync tool is not getting any traction on the poll however thats the one thats being developed prior to the BlackBerry .. I think the Blackberry has got to be moved forward on the development path as its clearly the largest market share out there ..
