Handheld Devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    Could someone answer the 2 questions I have please:

    1. Is it Windows Mobile 6.5 or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5?

    This link calls it "Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5":

    , but if you click link "Find developer resources" on same page, it takes you to page that calls it "Windows Mobile 6.5".

    Is this just a naming inconsistency?   They both are supported by max VS 2008 and nothing higher and .NET CF 3.5 so they seem to be same to me.

    2. What about writing handheld apps for cell phones and tablets running Win7/Win8?  How can that be done?

    Say I have app written in Win Mobile 6 for handhelds and I would like to make it run on Windows Phone or tablet running Win7 or Win8 OS.  What do I need to do in that case to make my handheld app work on a phone/tablet?

    Finally, this page asks to "Select a Forum Category" but it does not even provide option for Windows Mobile, Windows Embedded Handheld or .NET CF so I selected what I thought is the closest "Smart Device Development->Windows Mobile Development" and I code in Visual Studio C#.  

    Much Appreciated,
