Looks like I am the first to post. Thanks for the book and I look forward to comleting the reading in the next few weeks. The timing was perfect because I am now into a couple of projects that involve Windows Mobile 5.x

Thanks for choosing the book!

Let us know if you have any questions.

FYI, Windows Mobile 6 (Crossbow) is out. You can download WM6 SDK from Microsoft's website:

Just wanted to say hi and thanks for writing this book. I've had my treo 700 for over a year now and have only developed a couple simple programs for it, a mortgage calculator and little things like that. I'm a developer by profession, but don't have any experience with C# and it's been quite a few years since I've touch C/C++. I've mainly been developing in VB.Net, so I'm familure with .Net. I think it's great that someone has put all the pieces together in one place to get knowledge in C# and the Mobile SDK.

I've been looking for a book like this for some time. I'm glad I discovered it on ACM.

From what I've read so far it looks very well written and informative.

-Pete

Well, I like the book also. But when I try to unzip the programming samples, it asks for a key (password). Is this printed somewhere?

Thanks!

EB,

Only pei knows the password to this sample application and I believe he will be posting it soon. Thanks for your patience.

I think you are talking about opening the FirstSmartphoneApp project, right? The password prompt is for importing a user-generated pfx file.

I am sorry I don't remember the password either ...
But you can get around by re-configuring the project to stop using FirstSmartphoneAppKey.pfx to sign the assembly. Go to Project->Signing, un-check the box "Sign the assembly", and rebuild the project.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks,

-Pei

I too am new to "SmartPhone" and "PocketPC" programming, and new to .NET Compact Framework. However, since buying the book, and working with the many helpful examples/samples, I feel very confident tackling many advanced concepts of developing applications for these platforms. Nice job with the book!!! (Any prospects for an encore? a "part 2" to the book?)

I am curious though, about accessing the microphone device on a smarthpone. I have a Moto Q.
Any tips on manipulating this device? Am I required to use the TAPI interface?

Also, does anyone know of any web sites advertising application ideas for these platforms, for which the advertiser does not have the expertise or resources to develop the application?

TIA
