No this is not a mistake. It is not supposed to be 2022, and this is not a futuristic post about how mobile development will look a few years from now. It is about how we developed applications back then, in 2002. I found this magazine in a pile of old papers I was about to throw to the recycling bin, and suddenly it hit me – I wrote this piece on how to develop mobile apps more than 13 years ago!

October 28, 2010 – Emoze, the award winning provider of mobile, push email solutions is proud to announce that it now supports the Apple® iPhone® as part of its enterprise software platform.
Long a front runner of the consumer smartphone market, the iPhone® has many features which make it an attractive business tool. Emoze Enterprise Server is already available for WinMobile and Symbian mobile operating systems and now extends its smart management tool to the mail functions and personal information management of iPhone® mobile devices, providing business owners the control and handle of iPhones as secure business tools.
Ra’anana, Israel, 06 April 2010 – Emoze announced today the release of the latest version of their industry leading push email platform for Symbian devices. This version contains many enhancements requested by Emoze users designed to provide superior interface, ease and connectivity. “The user experience is very important to us”, said Moshe Dgani, VP R&D of Emoze, Ltd. “We want our platform to be simple to use, intuitive and above all valuable to the user. For that reason, we are pleased to announce the implementation of several features that our users have been asking for.”
This is indeed an interesting question. The article Ultimate Mobile OS Showdown: iPhone vs Android vs webOs vs Blackberry vs Windows Mobile vs Symbian tries to compare the good and bad of each of the common mobile OS at hand today.WorldMate is mentioned in this article as one of the better BlackBerry OS third-part apps for tracking travel plans.
Personally, I like the Windows Mobile OS, but I have to agree this is probably a dying mobile OS.
iPhone is very chick but if I have to gamble on a winner it will be the Android. Its openness and support from a plethora of vendors will make it the winner, eventually.
