So at work, I have been working on a couple mobile computing applications. I am doing one PDA application for one client and a Tablet PC application for another client.
The two applications have very similar challenges. They both need to be able to function disconnected. Both applications need to be able to sync support data and upload gathered data in a timely matter. I think we are going to develop a group of secure web services that will handle the needed syncing functionality.
The PDA also face many more challenges. First are the limiting resources of memory and processor speed. The limited screen size also is a challenge for displaying and gathering information.
