Description

SmartPhones. PocketPCs. How do you build applications for them? With Visual Studio, of course.

There's a whole team of people who are building the next version of Visual Studio for devices. You can meet them on this video tour.

But here Ori Amiga shows off all the devices that he has hanging out in his office (someone has to test Visual Studio and make sure it works great with all the devices).

He explains what's different between SmartPhones and PocketPCs. Over the next week he'll show you some cool new features in Visual Studio that'll help you build apps designed for these mobile devices.

      Just want to take the time to say that the interview quality is wonderful as opposed to when I was bitching about it about three months ago.. Good lighting, eye contact and well directed [organised] footage. Well done. Good video. Smiley

      Very Nice! I've been using CE devices since the Casio A11 was introduced.  I've been a mobile application junkie ever since.  Is there any info on the new Motorola MPx? 

      This seems to be one of the more elegant designs that I have seen.  I know it will be introduced soon, but I'd love to find out more...

      Does that "Blue Angel" Pocket PC have a VGA screen as well?  That seems to be the only thing keeping it from being the most perfect Pocket PC in existance... =D

      I've been having a wonderful time developing for the PocketPC and SmartPhone and microsoft has been very helpful in answering API changes/questions...


      ...However...

      Microsoft needs to start kicking the hardware manufacturers to get these things out in the public. I can't justify developing applications when only two phones exist in the US Market (as of 10/1/2004). Three more are planned, but they've been in 'planning' since Apr 2004. No hardware. No applications. Seems the manus are saying "no applications, no hardware". Catch-22

      Also, the battery life in these puppies HAS to improve. When Nokia and Sony can put out Symbian60 phones that have similar capabilities (multitask, camera/video, media player, PIM) with 2-3x the battery life there's not much we can do as developers to make the platform more successful.

      When will the US get the HTC phones? the i-mates? Largest economy on the planet, something like in 5th place when it comes to the cellphone market. Pathetic.
