The suite can extract device information, contacts, calendar events, SMS messages, event logs, and files. In addition, the vendor claims the suite can extract metadata related to the above.

The suite also supports devices running Symbian OS, Windows Mobile 5/6, Microsoft Windows Phone 8 and Android OS devices.
The suite access devices using advanced proprietary protocols. Some devices like smartphones may require an Agent installation.

But as not much information is obtainable by other means and the impact is documented, it may still be admissible under the Best Evidence Rule.
