Windows Store handhelds? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm starting to get into Windows Store (or "modern" or "8" or whatever development -- Microsoft stinks at keeping names simple and meaningful).  Anyway, I've successfully written an app that runs on a tablet.  But now I want to write an app to run on a Windows 8 handheld.  Are there such devices out there that aren't phones?

    I'm looking to put a handheld device in the pockets of guys in the field (they're on horseback so can't carry a tablet).  What devices are out there to choose from?  Any?

    Also (and this where Microsoft ticks me off again with naming things).. do I use Visual Studio and choose Windows Store app?  Or must I write some sort of "Windows Phone" app?  Or some sort of "Windows Embedded" app?  It's hard to wade through the confusion.
