Best smartphone for mobile trading?

  1. I do position trading and want to monitor my positions when I'm away from my desk. What's the best mobile device for this? Would you recommend the iPhone, iPad, Android or Blackberry? Thanks!
  2. depends on your broker.
  3. My broker supports all of them. Do you think it's better to have a built-in keyboard for order entry?
  4. iPad with IB's mobile app is quite nice for "monitoring" and an OCCASIONAL order modification. Greatly improved on their previous applications...

    I was not as impressed when using the iPhone, functional to monitor a bit small

    Ask your broker which platform they support BEST. Meaning which one gets updated more often, has the most users/customers, etc.
