Is there any plans for a PocketBuilder 3.0 release? or are we really looking
at a merger of the two tools?

We've got 3 mobile apps here, one PocketBuilder app, and two .Net Mobile
apps, and our reliance on 3rd party controls for the .Net Mobile apps is
quite well, annoying. I'd much rather have everything written in PkB, or
better yet, in a PB 15.Net environment that can produce .Net Mobile targets.

What's the strategy going forward?

My guess and hope is that they are looking at the HTML5 target in PB15 being
able to create applications that work equally well in web browsers and
handheld OS such as WP7, iOS or Android.

I didn't hear anything at Techwave about PB 15 itself targeting mobile
devices, but Appeon is planning to support mobile devices both natively
and using HTML5.

Hi Doug;

No, Sybase EOL'ed PK earlier this year. I have not seen any mobility
options in PB 15's detail specifications yet.

HOWEVER .... Appeon has a mobile version working! They are demonstrating
this at TechWave this week in Las Vegas!!!!! :-)))
