Pietro will present what are the biggest surprises that these old time mobility users are going to face and how we can help them to embrace, extend and enjoy the power of Android.

Large retailers were already using mobile computers with barcode scanners and Wireless networks in the 80s. During the last 30 years they have used custom HW running different versions of DOS,

PalmOS, PocketPC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld on Rugged PDAs and Smartphones.

Now it's time to migrate to someting new, to Android.

In this talk I will present what are the biggest surprises that these old time mobility users are going to face and how we can help them to embrace, extend and enjoy the power of Android.

To Android developers and entrepreneurs this talk will explain what are the best practices that the Industrial Mobility field has collected over 30 years of history:

  • Think about deployment at design stage

  • IT Friendly is as important as User Friendly

  • Why a solution that is good for the consumer market is not good enough for Industrial Mobility.

  • Acknowledge that your solution is going to survive some generations of Mobile devices (and maybe OSes)
