There's a superb article on Silicon.com about the Windows Mobile Smartphone trial that UK retailer Marks and Spencer are putting in place. Not sure about the sub-heading though "Mobile email not pants for execs". Check out the article at http://networks.silicon.com/mobile/0,39024665,39150773,00.htm

One of the great things about the article is that one of our UK partners, Conchango, is providing a dashboard solution to connect execs on the road to their Key Performance Indicators. More info about the KPI Dashboard (including demos) can be found here: http://www.conchango.com/Web/Public/Content/WhatWeDo/MobileBusiness.aspx

Seeing real solutions like this really helps to bring home the message about looking at mobility as a platform to build business out on to.

There is also a great quote from Gartner in the article:

Gartner analyst Monica Basso said Microsoft was the most developer-friendly mobile OS. "With other platforms [like BlackBerry], if you want to try application development on them it gets very difficult," she said
