Microsoft Extends Commitment to Enterprise Handheld Device Market with Release of "Windows Embedded Handheld" Platform

Jun 17, 2010

Download Demand for handheld devices in the enterprise continues unabated as organizations look to equip their increasingly mobile workforce with the requisite tools to support real-time decision-making and transaction processing in distributed or remote environments. The applications supported are as varied as the device form factors, the organizations deploying them, and the workers using them. As many of these solutions support mission-critical applications, demand for enterprise-class platforms to meet the stringent device management, security, and support requirements of organizations and end users are equally critical. The net result is that this combination of mission-critical applications and the services that are required to enable and support them is placing significant pressure on the OS platforms running these mobile devices.
