Afaria 7.0 Unplugged

Hi Guys,

I have been into Afaria Consulting for 1.5 years now  and somehow never found a complete document on what is supported on Afaria on each device platform. So rather looking for documents , I rolled my sleeves up and tested each functionality given below on each device platform. I know you people in field are bombarded with Afaria 7.0 functionality day in and out. and must be burning midnight oil to get those answers..I might not save whole night for you but will  save definately some oil for you..

So here it goes……..
