Hi all,

As I understand it, Windows Phone 7 won't be backwards compatible with
Windows Mobile 6.5 and before.

Will M-Business Anywhere support Windows Phone 7 and if so, which version
will support it?

Thanks.

Shao

There will be no way to answer these questions until more details are
made available from Microsoft and time is taken to analyze the changes,
if any. Microsoft has yet to provide much detail about the development
environment for the Phone 7 platform and according to InformationWeek
(http://www.informationweek.com/news/windows/microsoft_news/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=223000161&subSection=News)
details are expected to be made available at the MIX10 developers
conference next week. Even then, it might be some time before the
impacts on current software can be assessed.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for that.

My concern is that whilst iAnywhere will, regardless of the effort involved,
migrate the Ultralite database and Mobilink, the M-Business Client has not
had any substantial active development on it in years.

This being the case, the risk is much higher in iAnywhere not doing anything
to migrate it.

You're right - it is definately early days and as I understand it, Windows
Mobile 6.5 devices will be available for some time yet.

Thanks.

Shao
