"Itty-bitty handhelds are big, big, big with consumers. But they still need to better penetrate the business market."

"Toward that end, software vendors are developing or improving mobile enterprise applications. For one, Sybase Inc. is expected to unveil today an upgrade to its mobile database that will include Linux support and broader synchronization capabilities."
