This is great news for all Salesforce users as everyone moves to being more productive on smartphones and tablets. We envisioned this a few years ago when we first started using Salesforce, although then we were trying out the Salesforce for iOS app. This was ok, but obviously limited. Now Salesforce are moving to a HTML 5 standard for mobile and tablet access.
Why is this better? Well all smartphones, tablets etc come with a browser that will almost always be HTML 5 compatible. This enables all mobile devices, whichever operating system (iOS, Android, HP webOS, Blackberry Tablet OS) to access this touch Salesforce interface. Even more crucial is it will be perfect for the next generation of touch screen laptops running Windows 8. This will be hugely beneficial to companies as access to Salesforce data will be available at the touch of a finger…..literally. We can seriously foresee that this way of access to Salesforce, will in future become the norm. Head over to http://www.salesforce.com/touch/ to found out more info.
