    Which Uses Less Traffic: BlackBerry Push Or Microsoft Direct Push?

    The answer is finally answered in a research paper by Rysavy Research.  Under sponsorship from Research In Motion (RIM), the folks over at Rysavy Research conducted a series of laboratory tests to measure the data consumption of RIM’s BlackBerry solution versus Microsoft’s Direct Push.  This was done in a fully controlled environment simulated by actual handhelds, servers and sample e-mails that mirror real-life usage.

    Today, we shall take a look at the findings in the paper and summarize the results as well as conduct a closer examination of what it entails.  None withstanding that the research paper was sponsored, we believe that the results would still be relevant to assist us to answer our question - well, at least until the next wave of major upgrades by either RIM or Microsoft.  (Source: Paul Mah, Technology at Play)

    SYWARE, Inc.’s Visual CE Development Software Wins Pocket PC Magazine’s “Best Database Software Award 2006”

    International Board of Industry Experts Chooses Visual CE Professional Edition in the Database Category for the Third Year in a Row!

    SYWARE(R), Inc., a leading developer of intuitive, mobile database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced that Visual CE(R) Professional Edition has won Pocket PC magazine’s “Best Software Award 2006” in the database category. A diverse international panel of industry experts has chosen Visual CE Professional Edition in the database category for the third year in a row. With over 100,000 installations, SYWARE’s software enables individuals and companies of all sizes in any industry to develop and deploy mobile Pocket PC applications. SYWARE’s Visual CE PDA development tool, combined with its integrated products for wireless synchronization and remote printing, allows complete application implementation by in-house staff, the people who know their business best. Visual CE requires no programming to develop robust mobile applications, yet has the power to satisfy the needs of professional developers.

    The annual Pocket PC magazine Best Software Awards helps users select software that best suits their Windows Mobile Pocket PC needs by honoring companies that produce outstanding software. This year, over 80 Pocket PC magazine experts from around the world judged almost 600 Windows Mobile products in 100 Pocket PC and Developer categories to determine finalists and winners.

    According to Sy Danberg, president of SYWARE, Inc., “We are honored that Pocket PC Magazine’s panel of international judges has given us this award for three years in a row. The only way we have been able to stay on top for this long year is to continue to improve the product based on feedback from our large and diverse group of customers. They tell us what they need and we do everything we can to provide it.”

    This news follows a previous news item in which SYWARE, Inc. announced the release of Visual CE 10. The new release significantly extends the capabilities of Visual CE and its drag-and-drop desktop development environment, which enables both business professionals and developers to easily create Windows Mobile based applications with little or no programming. Among the new features in Visual CE 10 are centralized device control, a macro builder, and support for the Windows Mobile 5 Universal Camera API. (Source: Press Release)
