Summary: The market for mobile devices; smartphones, handhelds, and tablets is exploding. When Microsoft Windows Mobile used to be the dominant operating system on mobile devices, purchasing apps didn’t require a second thought. However, that isn’t the case any longer. Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS operating systems are now the dominate operating systems on mobile devices. This is a challenge because virtually all high-precision GPS/GIS/Surveying data collection apps are still written for Windows Mobile. Will vendors port their apps to Android and/or iOS? Will they use a cross-platform software environment like Java or HTML5?
