SYWARE Article: Take Advantage of the Economic Downturn
Things are slow these days, that's no news. But this is a great opportunity to finally create the handheld infra-structure you've wanted but never had the time to set up. If you've been thinking of automating by using handhelds, it's relatively inexpensive to pick up a copy of Visual CE and get handhelds working for you. Get a Visual CE Personal Edition now for just US$129 and develop your application while you have the time. When the economy picks up, you can then upgrade to the Pro Edition for just the difference in price to roll out your application to your users. The economy will get better, be ready when it does.

Technical Tip from "Dr. DeeBee": Executing a SQL Server Stored Procedure
If your server database is a SQL Server database, it might have a stored procedure you would want to run from your handheld. Of course, this stored procedure can only be started when the handheld "touches" the SQL Server (that is, during a synchronization and/or when a form is using mEnable). Here's how to do this.
Mobile Industry News: Windows Mobile 6.5 released
A tweet from the Windows Mobile Development Team says it all: "For the record, Windows Mobile 6.5 is DONE... complete... looks really good IOHO and every bit functional." Read about it here.
Of course, this release doesn't work the same as a desktop/laptop release. You can't get this release directly. Microsoft gives it to the hardeware vendors, who customize it for their individual models and release it (around September perhaps?).
Mobile Industry News: Visual Studio 2010 to drop support for Windows Mobile?
We've heard unconfirmed rumors that the next version of Visual Studio will not have suport for Windows Mobile. Don't panic, SYWARE's Visual CE will continue to support the Windows Mobile platform.
