Can I quit using my laptop?

 In Microsoft Dynamics CRM Blog

I have had a 16GB wifi iPad for about year and I have only used it casually for news and entertainment. I’ve been an iPhone user for about a year. I have found very useful tools on these devices and now I want to see how far I can go in replacing my laptop with this iPad. Here’s my recipe of apps:

  1. CWR Mobility for MSCRM 2011
  2. iPad Calendar and eMail sync’ing with Exchange
  3. iMExchange2 for Task Management/Synchronization
  4. Numbers will be my spreadsheet
  5. Pages will be my word processor
  6. SharePlusLite is my connection to Sharepoint
  7. Dropbox for my personal files

I’ve been using the iMExchange since I started using my iPhone and it’s very good for sync’ing your Outlook tasks with the iPhone. Also I’ve had CWR on my iPhone, so that’s a natural transition. Dropbox is extremely easy to use and great for my personal files. Numbers, Pages and SharePlusLite are new to me, and look very promising.

I know there are solutions available to emulate my laptop on the iPad. But I’m not interested in that. I want to make this work on the iPad alone. I will keep this blog updated with my progress. Stay tuned…
