Our Mobile computing Services has provided the following solutions

BlackBerry RIM
 
BlackBerry is a handheld device made by RIM (Research In Motion) and it has wireless e-mail handling capability. BlackBerry also provides access to other Internet services. Like the Palm, BlackBerry is also a personal digital assistant (PDA) that can include software for maintaining a built-in address book and personal schedule. In addition, it can also be configured for use as a pager.
 
Apple iPhone & iPad
 
iPhone is extremely thin. To navigate, a user uses multiple taps and drags to navigate through a mobile version of Apple's OS X operating system. Like iPod, iPhone synchronizes data with a user's personal computer, using iTunes as client software and Apple's proprietary USB port. iPhone is compatible with Microsoft's Windows operating systems, including Vista.
 
Google Android
 
New Mobile technology that allows us to access core mobile device functionality through standard API calls. The technology is capable to access basic phone, or an application, dialler, or even home screen. It combines information from the web with data on the phone -- such as contacts or geographic location -- to create new user experiences.
 
Symbian
 
Symbian is a mobile operating system (OS) targeted at mobile phones that offers a high-level of integration with communication and personal information management (PIM) functionality. Symbian OS combines middleware with wireless communications through an integrated mailbox and the integration of Java and PIM functionality (agenda and contacts).
 
Windows Mobile
 
Windows Mobile provides enhanced value for IT professionals in several key areas, by incorporating new features and enhancements including messaging and collaboration, infrastructure interoperability, security features, platform development, etc. The Windows Mobile creates a better, more secure platform and delivers advanced mobile communications, increased mobile productivity and integrated mobile business performance with a consistent and familiar software experience. The Windows Mobile optimizes for simplicity, flexibility and modularity.
 
POCKET PC
 
A Pocket PC, abbreviated P/PC or PPC, is a hardware specification for a handheld-sized computer (Personal digital assistant) that runs the Windows Mobile operating system. It may have the capability to run an alternative operating system like NetBSD or Linux. It has many of the capabilities of modern desktop PCs.
 
Palm
 
Palm is the trade name for a popular personal digital assistant (PDA), a form of handheld device that is also known as a palmtop computer. Data appears on an liquid crystal display (LCD) screen. One of the outstanding features of the Palm is its basic method of data entry: a writing device, called a stylus, can be pointed at icons on the display to select items for entry. The stylus can also be used to enter alphanumeric data (words and numbers) by manually scrawling them across the face of the display. This is known as Graffiti.
 
RFID
 
RFID (radio frequency identification) is a technology that incorporates the use of electromagnetic or electrostatic coupling in the radio frequency (RF) portion of the electromagnetic spectrum to uniquely identify an object, animal, or person. RFID is coming into increasing use in industry as an alternative to the bar code. The advantage of RFID is that it does not require direct contact or line-of-sight scanning.
 
VOIP / Unified Communications
 
Voice over Internet Protocol, a category of hardware and software that enables people to use the Internet as the transmission medium for telephone calls by sending voice data in packets using IP rather than by traditional circuit transmissions of the PSTN.
 
Fixed Mobile Convergence
 
Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) is the integration of wireline and wireless technologies and services to create a single network foundation.
 
WiFi & Wi-MAX
 
WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology aimed at providing wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called Wireless MAN.
 
J2ME
 
J2ME (Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition) is a technology that allows programmers to use the Java programming language and related tools to develop programs for mobile wireless information devices such as cellular phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs). J2ME consists of programming specifications and a special virtual machine, the K Virtual Machine that allows a J2ME-encoded program to run in the mobile device.
