Mobile device OS's RRS feed

  • User1527343056 posted
    I'm confused about what windows OS's (Windows CE, Windows Mobile,etc.) work with what devices (smart phones, pda'a, etc.) work with what frameworks (DOT NET framework, Compact Framework, SmartPhone Framework?, etc.) with what kinds of apps (Forms vs. Web apps). Specifically I want to develop small windows form apps for smart phones (e.g. Motorola MPX220) running Windows Mobile). I can't seem to get VS 2003 to notice that I have installed the smart phone SDK! So I don't have the option to develop a SmartPhone app as I do in VS 2005 Beta. Generally I'd like to understand the mobile OS's, the types of devices, the frameworks required, and the types of VS projects (smart device, smart phones, mobile devices) and the option for combining them into a project. Plus how do windows apps vs. web apps impact all the questions above? Please reply and also refer me to relavent (specific) books and sites. Thanks! John
