Cool New Tools in Windows Mobile 6 : Page 2

While it may be some time before you can get your hands on a Windows Mobile 6 device, this early look at the Windows Mobile 6 SDK reveals some of the new tools and utilities you'll be using soon.

New Project Templates
When the SDKs are installed, you'll find two new project types listed under the Smart Device item in Visual Studio 2005: Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Windows Mobile 6 Standard.

Figure 1. The Tools: These are installed with the Windows Mobile 6 SDKs.

Note that unlike Windows Mobile 5.0 projects, you do not have a choice to choose the older version of the .NET Compact Framework (which is version 1.0). This is because Windows Mobile 6 devices will now come preinstalled with:

  • .NET Compact Framework 2.0 SP1 in ROM
  • SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition in ROM
This will greatly simplify the deployment process, because it eliminates the need to explicitly bundle the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 distributable with your applications.



Once the SDKs are installed, you will find the Windows Mobile 6 SDK menu item installed in your Start menu (Figure 1).

Emulator Images
The Windows Mobile 6 SDKs comes with the following emulator images:

  • Windows Mobile 6 Standard SDK
    • Windows Mobile 6 Standard (176x220 pixels - 96 dpi)
    • Windows Mobile 6 Standard Landscape QVGA (240x320 pixels - 131 dpi)
