In computer forensics, the devices that we are imaging are static storage devices; this means that with we will obtain the same image every time. In mobile phone forensics, the devices that we are imaging are full dynamic systems; this means that, while we may support the phone, we might only extract the contacts, SMS, and call logs but not the calendar or any other combination of this information. This may come as a shock to many customers that have never dealt with any mobile forensic software or haven’t had any type of mobile forensic training; but for those customers that understand mobile phone forensics, they should only see MPE+ as a tool that can help them fill the voids of other software they use and become their main tool.
