Critical Testing Criteria for Smartphones from eWEEK Labs

by Andrew Garcia
With Microsoft's orientation toward a consumer audience with the forthcoming Windows Phone 7, enterprises in the United States are left with few familiar mobile platform options going forward. Research In Motion's BlackBerry remains the last whale in the domestic enterprise ocean, but IT implementers may be tempted to ride the wave of popularity, productivity and user mindshare gained by the up-and-comers—iPhone, Android, WebOS and, eventually perhaps, Windows Phone 7. In that spirit, eWEEK Labs has compiled a list of things to consider when evaluating enterprise mobile OS platforms.
Andrew cut his teeth as a systems administrator at the University of California, learning the ins and outs of server migration, Windows desktop management, Unix and Novell administration. After a tour of duty as a team leader for PC Magazine's Labs, Andrew turned to system integration - providing network, server, and desktop consulting services for small businesses throughout the Bay Area. With eWEEK Labs since 2003, Andrew concentrates on wireless networking technologies while moonlighting with Microsoft Windows, mobile devices and management, and unified communications. He produces product reviews, technology analysis and opinion pieces for eWEEK.com, eWEEK magazine, and the Labs' Release Notes blog.
