I need to write an custom offline application that will be able to sync with
the pc to transfer its data. The app provides some data entry
capability, then the user connects it to the pc and view these data in
a desktop version of the app.
Which mobile device would be the best choice?
I researched several mobile devices and not sure which one to choose? Gphone, BlackBerry smartphones, palm, or others?
Which one provides the best interface for syncing with pc and proprietory data transfer?
What is the typical methodology for developing driver to sync the
mobile device and the pc(assuming its windows based)? Do I need to run
app on the pc to listen for physical connections and then start a
desktop app to acquiring data from the device? How will my desktop app
initiate conversation with the mobile one? Or is there a higher level
framework provided for this purpose?
