How Do I in Smart Device Development 

This topic has been updated for Visual Studio 2005 SP1.

Visual Studio 2005 offers rich, integrated support for developing software that runs on Windows CE- and Windows Mobile-based smart devices such as Pocket PCs and Smartphones. You can use Visual C# or Visual Basic to write managed applications that run on the .NET Compact Framework, or you can write native applications using Visual C++. Whichever language you choose, you use the same code editor, designers, and debugger interface as you would when you develop for the PC. Simply select from one of the Smart Device Project templates available for the language of your choice, and begin coding.

Visual Studio also provides emulators, so that you can run and debug your code on your development computer without the need for a physical device.
