Submission + - Managing Mobile Laptops

sabre307 writes: Our company has recently decided to go electronic with our field service workforce by providing mobile devices with a 3G connection. After evaluating a number of different hardware platforms it was decided that we would need the capabilities provided by MS Windows so we have settled on a model of netbook. At this point the IT department has been left with the task of trying to figure out how to manage these devices once they have been deployed, most notably to control what the 3G data can be used for. In our research we are finding a number of solutions to manage mobile devices running a mobile OS (iOS, Android, WP7, RIM, etc.), but nothing to manage a computer that is actually running Windows 7 Professional. What ideas can the /. community offer on how to best manage these devices?
