Windows Mobile and Tablet Development

When Java developers talk about taking enterprise applications mobile, the conversation often gravitates toward Android and iOS, but some development experts are certain the Windows mobile platform is a better fit for the enterprise.

Patrick Emmons -- co-founder of Adage Technologies and an accomplished technical architect with more than 15 years of experience -- told us that Windows tablet development may the best fit for enterprise organizations that need to send workers out into the field.

While Emmons emphasized the point that he and his colleagues are "not hating on Apple," they do see Windows as a better fit for business. "We all have iPads, and it's not that we don't appreciate those products," he said, but Apple products are designed to delight consumers and that might not meet the particular needs of an enterprise organization. Emmons pointed to a few key advantages of the Windows platform over Apple or Android.
