Touch-ability is one of the most important new features of Windows Mobile 6.5.  As many of you know, we released Gesture APIs for C++ developers earlier this summer.  Thanks to the hard work of folks like Maarten Struys, Alex Yakhnin and Ron Buckton, we now have gesture support for the .NET Compact Framework.  You can download Maarten's code from http://www.dotnetfordevices.com/forum.html#376 and you can head on over to http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/gestureswm to download a sample solution for VS 2008 as well as a managed assembly from Ron and Alex.  I just took the sample code for a spin and the Gesture and Physics samples work like a champ!  The ability to Pan and Flick will add a new level of sophistication to the Windows Mobile 6.5 apps you’ll be building for you customers.
