Windows Mobile Development ( SmartDevice SDK )

Overview

The Windows Mobile 6 SDKs add documentation, sample code, header and library files, emulator images and tools to Visual Studi
o that
let you build applications for Windows Mobile 6.



With Windows

Mobile 6, we are revising our SKU taxonomy and naming to better align our brand and products with the realities of
today’s mobile device marketplace. The historical form
-
factor based distinction between Windows Mobile powered Smartphone and
Windows Mobile

powered Pocket PC Phone Edition is blurring dramatically. We want our taxonomies and terminology to evolve to
better reflect the evolution of the mobile device industry.


The list below summarizes the changes and the SDK that must be used when targeting t
he platforms (Previous Categories = New
Categories):

Smartphone

Windows Mobile for Pocket PC


=

Windows Mobile Classic


(download the Windows Mobile 6
Professional SDK)



Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition


=

Windows Mobile Professional


(download the Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK)

The Windows Mobile 6 SDKs reflect these changes in the naming of "Project Templates" and "Emulator Images".
