    Hi,

    Can you tell me what all features are you looking for if i know about requirements then its easy for me to answer which version of mobile should you pick up.

    Else i will have to give you a matrix which states Mobile server release and features supported. I can do that as well but it will take time.

    Shweta.

    Hello,

    SAP BO Mobile

    SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 SP2 supports

    1. Viewing of documents assigned to Mobile Category in Webi.

    2. Only WebIntelligence Documents are supported.

    3. Refresh and Prompts are also supported on these documents.

    4. Three types of charts(Line, Bar, Pie) are supported along with tables.

    5. User experience for charts is appreciated in this realease.

    SAP BusinessObjects 4.0 SP2 Latest FP will support

    1. Latest instances of scheduled document.

    2. Support for enchancements to prompts.

    Few more functionalities have been added but they will be shiped in FP13 or 14. So cant write about them now.

    SBO Explorer.

    I do not have much information on this product. But whatever is listed in documentation must work.

    Catalog Browser.

    This is a project which does not have official support from BO, so documentation also will be scarce, in case you have specific questions you can ask i will try to answer them.

    SAP BO Experience is a demo product released for Customers to experince the feel of our product and then buy it :).

    Hope it helps.

    Shweta.

    Regarding your question about

    "Further I ask myself -

    What would it change if I would choose on the SBO Explorer the 'connect via Mobile' slider in comparison to the external BO Server link - "

    I will get back to you by tomorrow.

    Shweta.

    • Hi Mark,

      As of BI4.1, the MOBI and Explorer have merged into a single app. These aren't OLAP specific, but can consume the BusinessObjects Universe.

      FYI - Explorer can consume both UNV and UNX since SP06/4.1.

      Regards,

      H
