Avoid P800 iSync Bluetooth connection failures
Authored by: clmensch on Dec 14, '03 11:47:27PM
MobileVB? Why not just learn to program natively for Symbian instead of using a kludge for running apps built with the crappiest platform around? Just because VB is easy does not mean it's good.

better/worse aside, its quicker. when your development is tied to ROI and your own personal financial reward, you will think of other priorities rather than despising a given platform for your own personal opinions. as a professional developer, i can use the *same* MobileVB code and deploy to symbian OS (UIQ,series 60, nokia 9200 and 36xx/76xxx), palm os 3;4;5, pocket pc 2000,2k2,and 2k3 with the only changes being screen-related and what method i choose of storing data (use sybase ultralite for the data-storage choice and you only have to modify the screens). tell me how quickly you can comp, develop and deploy an app in c or java (yes i do those, but not because i like them, but for business reasons) to any or all of the above platforms? i thought so. you would do yourself, not to mention your clients, a favor if you checked it out and got over the M$ prejudice; i've all apple hardware in my home/ home-office, but outside that i have the rule "i'll take anyone's money" that applies to client/business choices.

The syncing hint works seems to sort my problems so far, as to native programing of symbian apps, I'm curious as to how to develop Symbian Apps using my MacosX iBook when the SDK is completely windows PC -oriented. as is the symbian emulator provided etc.

If you could point me to a site with suitable info, I'd be very interested

Cheers
