What mobile device are you using? (Survey)

Hello everyone! I am an employee at Novell with the Quality Assurance Department.

We are currently determining what new mobile devices we need to support, and which devices we will no longer officially support. In order to get a better feel for what our customers are using, we need you to tell us what device you are using, and what device you plan to use in an upgrade. Feel free to add in what phones your co-workers use, and give opinions on operating systems.

Here is the list of devices we currently support (there are actually a few new ones we need to update.)

Data Synchronizer Mobility Connector Devices - CoolSolutionsWiki

We are also currently debating whether to discontinue testing on Palm OS, as well as some of the older windows mobile 6.5 phones. If you are a fan of these operating systems, please speak up! Thanks! If this could be stickied for a short period of time that would also be great.:D

We predominantly use HTC & Motorola Android phones here. HTC
Incredible, HTC Incredible 2, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid 3
are the most commonly used.

I'd definitely stop worrying about PalmOS. I'm not sure how much WM65
is still used, but IMO that should be a lower priority. Android and
iOS should be the focus, followed by Windows Phone (7/7.5) and Symbian.
IMO.

Most of our users have Apple iOS, then droids, then Windows 7 phones, then the rest of the refuse.

Re: What mobile device are you using? (Survey)

I am testing with the iPhone4 /4s as well as the iPad. I am also trying to find what Droids work best with Mobility. I would really like to see the Bionic and or the new Razr to work well with Mobility.

Stay away from Motorola, then. It's not just Mobility they have issues
with. Moto devices also have some of the same quirks with Exchange.

We've actually had OK results with our Motorola Droid 3 phones (20
units). I haven't had to go through the hoops that I've seen mentioned
in many places just to get the ActiveSync account setup, but I assume
it's because we have a valid, externally signed SSL certificate
installed (Digicert wildcard cert). We initially had an issue with
Droid 2's not automatically synchronizing, but a recent OS update on
those phones seems to have fixed that. No other major issues to report.

Our HTC Incredibles 1 & 2 (10 units) have been a little more
troublesome, with a few units requiring periodic account add/removes to
correct syncing issues. We only have one nagging issue where deleting
appointments from the phone doesn't delete them in GroupWise, so the
user still needs to delete the appointment in GroupWise at some point.

I will say that I miss the reliability of our BlackBerry's and BES,
although the users don't miss the last round of BB devices (Tours and a
few Storms). We retired those last month, finally cutting completely
over to the Androids. Everyone loves the new phones, but they can't
seem to comprehend that it's now taking about 10x-20x the work on the
back end that the BlackBerry's had required just to keep the Android
devices running properly. I've spent more time fixing sync issues on
one HTC Incredible device in the last 9 months than I had combined on
all 25 of our old BlackBerry devices in the previous 2 years.
