Item description for Palm & Pocket PC Programming by Vadim Kalinin...
A guide to developing applications for the main types of modern mobile devices-the Palm OS and the Pocket PC, this book focuses on using the new MobileVB tool from AppForge to create PDA applications. The applications developed are specifically for Palm devices, pocket computers with the Pocket PC/Windows CE operating system, and for Kyocera and similar communicators. Descriptions are of a different, free development environment from Microsoft-eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0-that allows programmers to create applications for pocket computers with the Pocket PC OS and its previous version, Windows CE. Tasks that use databases including a compact version of the SQL server are emphasized. Described are the basic features of MobileVB and eVB and their limitations when compared to standard Visual Basic. A detailed description is given of the controls (ingots) of each of the languages, the library functions, and the accompanying utilities. Also covered are a wide range of possible programs including games, applications that use databases, and Internet technologies.

Reviews - What do customers think about Palm & Pocket PC Programming?
very good start up book Nov 17, 2003
very good book for those who started to code PDAs. Starts from tool installation til developing apps. It assumes you know VB and SQL.
Some good information but... Jul 25, 2003
Whoa, This book is out of date! It starts off with some interesting history about PDAs. The editing is a little rough with typos and stilted english. The AppForge info is two years old. Even worse, the Microsoft embedded Visual Basic chapters are pretty worthless and even more out of date. Save your money for a more recent book.
