Windows CE 6 and Windows Mobile Virtual Labs


I’m working on a number of Windows CE 6 Virtual Labs – if you want to see what the experience is like you might want to check out some Windows Mobile 5.0 Virtual Labs


I know that Loke Uei is working on some more Windows Mobile labs as we speak (well actually he’s taking a very well deserved vacation this week – but I’m sure he’s thinking about the labs!).


The Windows CE 6 labs will be based around the new ARM Device Emulator, which interestingly can run in a Virtual PC environment (and runs 40% faster than the DeviceEmulator 1.0! –  you can thank Barry Bond here) – for Windows CE 5.0 the x86 emulator was a modified version of Virtual PC, and you probably know that Virtual PC doesn’t like running inside Virtual PC.


You may have some suggestions for Windows CE 6 or Windows Mobile 5.0 Virtual Labs – if so, leave a comment and I will pass any Windows Mobile suggestions over to Loke.

  1. A few days ago, Mike made a post about us building Virtual Labs for both Window CE6 and Windows Mobile….

    Where is USB OTG support for CE 6 hiding and is it available for Mobile 5? So many devices running Mobile 5 have the hardware support, but it is a mystery to me why the software support is missing in action.

    Don’t forget that Windows CE and Windows Mobile are two different things. Windows CE is a componentized operating system where the OEM has full control over the components and technologies included in the operating system image – Windows Mobile has its components/technologies pre-selected by the Windows Mobile team.
