A new set of APIs is being introduced that will enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework. The gesture APIs allow an application to handle touch gesture input and provide a visually consistent experience with the rest of the device UI. Note that the gesture APIs are only available on the Windows Mobile Classic and Professional SKUs. The headers and libraries are installed in the Windows Mobile SDK\Pocket PC\ folder. Samples that make use of these APIs are installed into the Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit\Samples\ folder.

  1. With the Windows Mobile 6.5 device emulator images now finally released we can probably start to see

    This leaves only 25MB of free Storage RAM. Our application which I wanted to test under WM 6.5 has 37 MB of compiled binaries (in release build) and some data files. It does not fit.

    Using shared folder is not possbile because database uses some API that is not implemented correctly in the Emulator 3.0 and so DB does not allow to write into databases located on the "Storage Card". I even tried to make shared folder on FAT32 volume (real CF card on desktop). No success.

    It seems I will have to spent some time on debugging Sqlite engine to see what I/O API does not work under emulator.
