Windows Mobile 6 Released

February 22, 2007
Windows Mobile 6 was released a week or so ago.
 
This, as I understand, is based on CE 5 not CE 6!
 

From a developer’s perspective, most/all(?) WM% stuff will run on WM6 so no need chaneg any of that. 

To exploit WM6 features you will will need the CE 6 emultor (coming)

I guess it will be a while before WM6 devices are available.

 

 

Reminder: You can’t create WM6 devices yourself (unless you are a mobile devices manufacturer).

You can only write apps etc in VS2005 to target the emulator and existing WM6 devices (when they become available).

It uses Device Emulator 2.  CE 6 used that version (are they exactly the same?)

The SDK is scheduled for release on March 1
