Windows Mobile 5.0

What a week, Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 is finally released. Lots of reading to be had to see what is in this new version.

Highlights for me include a lot of the new API's, especially the managed versions - to enable an application to better integrate with the standard phone, camera, media and PIM functions. The new ARM emulator will provide a better runtime and debugging experience which will mean that applications will work exactly the same on the device and within the emulator - no more weird behaviour between the two.

I have downloaded the SDK to install at some stage - just need to find a chunk of time to play. (Note: VS 2005 Beta 2 is a pre-requisite). Enjoy :-)
