For the best MobileSurvey experience, Perseus recommends Windows Mobile based devices. Perseus MobileSurvey has been tested with all versions of the Pocket PC and Windows Mobile operating system. However, since handheld manufacturers who license these products are free to choose from non-standard hardware and are free to modify the underlying OS, unforeseen compatibility problems may arise. Perseus recommends testing your hardware with MobileSurvey before planning a large purchase.
