Can I use the SAP Mobile Platform to build apps for devices like Portable Data Terminals (PDT) from vendors e.g. Intermec, which typically use bar-code scanners, GPS and so on?
In general, yes – the SAP Mobile Platform is device-agnostic. However, such devices may use in- and output that is not predefined in the SAP Mobile Platform (e.g. barcode reader data). Therefore, the developer may need more time to “hook up” the device to the SAP Mobile Platform and any back-end system. Q&A-sessions, boot-camps and communities are available to help partners.
