I have recently set up a new consultancy arm, Rugged Mobile Works, that focuses on rugged device software. The introduction of new Android rugged devices presents some interesting new opportunities in Enterprise and B2B. However, depending on the project, Android isn’t for everyone and Windows Mobile/CE might still be more suitable.
Rugged Mobile Works aids decisions such as Android vs Windows Mobile/CE. It also facilitates more flexible working practices, for example, mixtures of outsourced (to us), in-house (with existing staff) and offshore development via my many industry colleagues and partners. It builds on my past experience of rugged projects in the fields of train ticketing and farming.
