Advisory and Comment:
Good combination of smart phones and CRM - Nokia and SAP. Is a smart phone capable enough for acting as a frontend to SAP applications. Yes, in a limited way. The real smart device (phone and PDA) is slowly emerging but not there, in our opinion. However. let us not hold off the functionality that we can deliver today - tomorrow will be better than today!.
