Windows Mobile Managed APIs

A very long time ago I blogged a bit about the Windows Mobile 5.0 managed APIs (also see this).

Recently I also described how to work around installing the free WM5.0 SDK on Windows Vista.

With v5.0 now being the de facto standard of Windows Mobile devices out there and given that the next version of Windows Mobile fully supports these APIs, it is never too late to jump in and learn how to use them and what they are about. In December I wrote a short article for the msdn flash on this very topic (subscribe to the flash now if you don’t already!).

So, if you want to learn more about the WM v5.0/vNext managed APIs or need more proof that mobile development works fine on Vista, download my 3-part nugget, which I hinted at in the article:

Part 1: Configuration, Telephony and Forms [streaming file and zip download]

Part 2: Status [streaming file and zip download]

Part 3: PocketOutlook [streaming file and zip download]

Note: The first 2-3 minutes of all videos is the same introduction. The last 1-2 minutes of all videos is the same summary and links. The 17-19 minutes in between is the demo bit, different in each part of course.
