Want to know what got all of these folks so pumped up???
It's the Windows Mobile Smackdown session from an internal Microsoft technical readiness event for tech folks in the field called "TechReady". For the past three years, this has been one of the most popular sessions for Microsoft employee developers. The Windows Mobile team comes out and shares the latest developer news for the Windows Mobile platform. Oh yeah, they give away a few free cutting-edge devices!
Did you know there were 11 million Windows Mobile devices sold last year? Microsoft claims there will be close to 20 million sold this year. That's a huge market of smart phone users out there running on Windows Mobile.
One of the great things about Windows Mobile is that it has a great development platform. Developers can build applications that run on Windows Mobile easily using tools like Visual Studio 2008 and the .NET Compact Framework.
There are all sorts of exciting mobile applications out there, whether they be for consumers or business. Some of my favorite are: Live Search Maps, Tiny Twitter, and Yahoo Go! If you're company uses Windows Mobile, it's easy to build corporate applications that tap into services behind the firewall. Think expense reporting on the go! Or even scanning business cards into contacts!
