If you missed the webcast yesterday morning, Bill Gates (Microsoft), Ed Colligan (Palm) and Denny Strigl (Verizon Wireless) announced a partnership to bring a Palm device running Windows Mobile software to the Verizon network.

If you're new to the Windows Mobile world, my name is James Pratt and my team looks after our developer platform including articles, webcasts, events, our MSDN presence and a bunch of other stuff.  Lots of people from the Windows Mobile team contribute to this blog with updates on what we're working on as well as discussions, help and how to's.

We've pushed live some materials today to help Palm developers find out more about Windows Mobile, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/mobility/windowsmobile/howto/palmos/default.aspx.  If you're a Palm developer, you can get started today developing for Windows Mobile 5.0 using the getting started information contained in that link.

And of course, if you're a Palm developer who's interested in the new Windows Mobile device, my blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/jamespr) and the Windows Mobile team blog (http://blogs.msdn.com./windowsmobile) are a great way to keep in touch.  Let us know if the content above is helpful and what else you'd like to see.
