In 2001/2002 we built an internal app via Compact .NET Framework which ran on PocketPC devices which allowed users to obtain signatures for delivered packages. Then when they returned to the mail room they put the device in the cradle and it snyced all data back to SQL Server. It worked really well and building code in .NET (compact) was really nice. Yes, there were limitations and challenges but it worked quite qell.
Way back in 01/02 and we were building mobile apps. Many years before Apple. But, alas, first to market (or even best product) does not always win.
When MS lost on the mobile app front may have been when they lost completely. Not sure why they gave up so easily, except that someone didn't understand that it was the future / no leadership into mobile development.
