Windows Mobile 6 SDK


With the Windows Mobile 6 announcement it is time to start talking about the new SDK we put together for this release (and I can finally tell you what I’ve been working with since I arrived here). We have been working hard on it and we all hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do 🙂


What’s new for developers?



  1. Great application compatibility for Windows Mobile 5 applications

  2. .NET Compact Framework v2 SP1 in the ROM!

  3. SQL Server Compact Edition in the ROM!

  4. New APIs


    • New Sound APIs

    • WISP Lite (Yes, the same WISP technology from the TabletPC!)

  5. Several new tools:


    • Cellular Emulator (kind of having your own Mobile Operator 😉

    • Local Server Framework (aka FakeServer)

    • FakeGPS

    • Hopper

    • CabToolSigner

    • Security Configuration Manager

  6. New emulator images

  7. Platform improvements

  8. Integrated documentation

Overall Windows Mobile 6 SDK makes it easier to develop, build, test and deploy your applications.


I’ll drill down into the SDK details on my next posts – so stay tuned!
