Had a very pleasant day out at the London Boat Show on Saturday with my mate Dave Oliver.

While we were at it we chatted quite a bit about Technology as we do, we are geeks after all ;-), and in the process he did explain about this very cool Management System for mobiles from Sybase called iAnywhere's Afaria.

How about scripted support for Window Mobile (2002 - Mobile 5), Windows CE (Version 2 -5) , Windows Win32 (Windows  XP,2000,2003), Smartphone (2002- Mobile 5), Palm and Symbian?

When you get right down to it, this does appear to actually offer a solution very similar to Altiris but with a very sharp focus on covering all of the Mobile platforms. The biggest drawback at the moment though would appear to be trying to understand it, with very little diagrams, etc on their web site.

Is it "old fashioned" of me to at least want some sort of Architectural Diagram that puts the product/solution in context (and swiftly points to the benefits?) before we jump in and start discussing this particular vendors jargon and buzzwords?
