I want to develop an application for a GPRS/GPS enabled device. Device has Magnetic Swip reader to read magnetic stripped card. I want my application to read the card, send data to server, retrieve corresponding data from server and display on the screen
of the device. Device also has inbuilt GPS to send its location at a particular interval. Please tell me weather i should develop a client and server application seprately or should develop webpages/website and use IIS server. I think in client server application
I would have to apply socket programming. I am comfortable with that. Please guide me..... what should i do ?

U r saying that, u need to read Magnetic Swipe reader, then u have to develop a thick application, which has to installed into the device, thus it gives more control over it.
Where as Web application is concerned, u can't access the device hardware.
So, my suggestion is develop a thick client.
Hope it helps u...
