How IT Should Compare Mobile Platforms
When deploying mobile technology, think beyond the devices themselves and consider how they will integrate into the corporate infrastructure.

There are four mobile operating systems to choose from: Microsoft Windows Mobile, Research in Motion BlackBerry OS, PalmOS, and Symbian; the impact of Apple's OS X on the iPhone is yet to be seen.
