Subject Re: Firebird for Nokia N900
Author marc_guillot
Thank you Lester.

Yes, it's very easy to develop for the N900 (and to port old applications).

I don't want an always connected requisite. I prefere a local database (24 hours available and full speed access) and a replication mechanism.

I suppose I will go with SQLLite on the phone application and Firebird on desktops.

A Firebird Embedded for phones OS (iPad, iPhone, Android, Maemo/Meego, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone, ...), will be awesome, I hope someday someone could do the port.

Thanks again.
