At the Autodesk Connected blog Alex Willingham talks about using the US-based Constructware construction collaboration system via a Blackberry wireless device.
The tools clearly focus on document collaboration rather than drawings, which is hardly surprising. I regularly hear seasoned AEC professionals moaning about how it is more difficult to view and mark-up drawings on-screen than using paper – and this is by people using desktop machines or laptops! I am not sure anyone would want to view a drawing on a PDA or similar hand-held device.
Still, the Constructware Blackberry development must be a sign that there is some AEC industry demand for applications on wireless mobile devices.
