This is very exciting to see. It really seems that Windows Embedded Handheld devices will be important in the upcoming future. As a matter of facts, so important that a brand new blog by Dion Hutchings is not published on MSDN. Different from Windows Phone, Windows Embedded Handheld devices
- can have different form factors
- have access to Win32 API’s
- can run native and managed applications
- can have additional hardware resources.
For a while it seemed that Microsoft quietly would let go of Windows Mobile (or Windows Embedded Handheld, as I should call it these days). However, with this brand new blog, but also with some encouraging words from Kevin Dallas, it seems that Windows Embedded Handheld is alive and kicking.
