We had tested the Microsoft CRM Mobile running on PDA Phone PPC6700 and it performed well (Part 2). Here is the current list of PDA and PDA Phones we have tested that works with Microsoft CRM Mobile 3.0 (list will update periodically):
–Dell Axim x51v (April, 2006)
-Sprint PPC6700 (May, 2006)
-Verizon XV6700 (June, 2006)
-Cingular 8125 (June, 2006)
-T-Mobile MDA (June, 2006)
As of July, 2006, the fastest mobile broadband data protocol available in the U.S. is EV-DO from Sprint, Verizon, Alltel, etc. The average EV-DO download speeds range from 300 Kbps to 500 Kbps with peak rates of 2.4 Mbps! Upload speeds averaging 50 Kbps to 70 Kpbs. Also, unlimited PDA Phone web/data access plan from Sprint Power Vision Access Pack is available at $15.00 per month! Yup – you’ve guessed it, I went with the Sprint PPC6700 for myself.
Story time – here is an interesting Microsoft CRM Mobile experience during the past month:
I was visiting one of our Microsoft CRM clients planning for an upgrade to Microsoft CRM v3.0. They needed to redeploy their production v1.2 over to a test environment to test the v3.0 upgrade. Microsoft CRM v1.2 installation requires both the Organization Name and matching License Key. And guess what, the Client didn’t have it handy.
As a practice, we store our clients’ License Key under their corresponding CRM Account’s notes. So… I quickly pulled out my Sprint PPC6700 running our Microsoft CRM Mobile and subscribed to their Account to bring down the needed info. Bingo, in less than a minute, their License Key appeared on my PDA!
That is so efficient! And the coolest part of it is that the Client after witnessing what just happened wants to evaluate Microsoft CRM Mobile 3.0 for their production use!
Microsoft CRM Mobile – Don’t leave home without it!
