Third Party Software? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am completely new to mobile devices. We will be using Motorola MC70 series PDA's.

    I've never programmed anything other than Winforms so some third party software would be a real help.

    I think I can program the PDA forms okay, but I have no idea how to communicate back and forth.

    Is there third party PDA communication software available?

    Also, can I program the PDA's with Visual Studio?

    Can I program in C#?

    Thanks for any ideas or suggestions,

    Dennis

    Would you mind detailing some of your requirements?  Like the desktop you can make use of web services and WCF on your Windows Mobile device. However, it's important to remember that these devices are "occasionally connected."  Their connections can come and go as the user walks around with the device and moves into and out of areas that can get a signal.

    It takes all the running you can do to stay in one place.If you want to get somewhere else,you must try to run at least twice as fast as that.

  • Thank you Malleswar and Joel.

    This is a little intimidating but I need to get started somewhere.

    As I said, we will be using Motorola MC70 series PDA's. I found Motorola's PocketBrowser developer toolkit which looks like it could help.

    Thanks again,

  • Hi Dennis,

    If your device provide bluetooth function, we can communicate betwwen device using bluetooth, SDK provide a sample:

    D:\Program Files\Windows Mobile 6 SDK\Samples\PocketPC\CPP\win32\Bluetooth\BthChat


    This sample application that demonstrates how to create a peer to  peer communication between two devices over the Bluetooth wireless technology.
