SDK API Reference (Handheld 8.1)


Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld represents the next generation of Microsoft’s leading platform for industrial handheld and point of service (POS) devices.

In addition, Handheld 8.1 incorporates features of the WinRT API that are not supported in Windows Phone, providing a new programming interface for modern applications to access POS peripheral devices, such as barcode scanners and magnetic stripe readers (MSR).
