    How do I Render an ASP.Net app on a Pocket PC 2003 IPaq PDA without actually buying the PDA? I want the app to be browsable by either a PC or a PDA, but I want to see how the PDA version will render the page without actually having to go out and buy a PDA.

    check out http://developer.openwave.com i have a sharp gx20 that uses the openwave browser, its pretty good and theres a plugin for VS if you go to http://developer.openwave.com/dvl/tools_and_sdk/partner_tools/ so you can view pages straight from the phone browser emulator

    After reviewing the OpenWave url, it seems that all there browser apps are geared towards phones, not PDAs. If I am mistaken or have missed something obvlious, please correct me. And thanks for the initial info.

    There is an emulator for the Pocket PC available for download as part of the SDK. It's a pretty big download but will allow you to see how pages will look on a Pocket PC without buying one.

    Thanks a ton. Will this emulator also recognize the new Whidbey controls???? If not, when and/or where will one be available? Thanks again.

    The emulator never sees the server controls. It only sees the rendered output, so new and custom controls and adapters should work fine with it.

    I think the Windows Mobile SDK has the emulator you can install.  Check this out.
