We were fortunate enough to get to check out a very interesting online service from a company called 3CX. Their service is called Mobile Device Manager and it is very practical. It basically helps you keep track of all your mobile devices and more, via their online interface. Although the service could be useful for just about any user, it looks especially powerful for businesses or IT Managers to be able to track all the equipment they dole out to employees, including smartphones and tablets.
