Built-in support for Windows Mobile 5
Windows Mobile 5 emulators, project templates, and libraries are now built into Visual Studio. For more information, see Welcome to Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK Documentation. Smart device programmability includes the following built in Software Development Kits (SDKs):
Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC SDK
Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone SDK
Windows CE 5.0
Pocket PC 2003 SDK
Visual Studio does not support managed development for Smartphone 2003.

Rich design-time support for Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5.
SQL Server Compact 3.5 replaces SQL Server Mobile Edition as the file-based database of choice for writing smart device applications in Visual Studio. You can still write applications by using SQL Server Mobile in Visual Studio. However, in order to take advantage of the rich design time data designer, you must use SQL Server Compact 3.5 in Visual C# or Visual Basic projects.
