Download SDK for Windows Mobile 6.5

Microsoft has released the Developer Tool Kit for Windows Mobile 6.5.The SDK is a little late getting here, but at least it is nice to see that Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK is ready for devs.Microsoft ‘s Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK is now ready to add sample code, header and library files, documentation, emulator images and tools to Visual Studio thus delivering everything a Windows Mobile developer requires to push ahead in application development.It can be used on Microsoft's Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Vista and Windows XP Service Pack 3 operating systems, and comes with support for six languages, namely Chinese Simplified, English, German, French, Italian and Spanish.A new set of APIs is being introduced that will enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework.

The gesture APIs allow an application to handle touch gesture input and provide a visually consistent experience with the rest of the device UI. Note that the gesture APIs are only available on the Windows Mobile Classic and Professional SKUs. Windows Mobile SDK comes with a new set of APIs which “enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework.The Windows Mobile 6 SDK must also be installed in order to use any of the Windows Mobile 6.5 Gesture API or samples.


One of the most important features of the Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK is the fact that it comes with a new set of APIs, one that will allow developers to come up with applications based on the Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework. The headers and libraries are installed in the Windows Mobile SDK\Pocket PC\ folder. Samples that make use of these APIs are installed into the Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit\Samples\ folder.

Re: Download SDK for Windows Mobile 6.5

Coding for Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't vastly different than coding for 6.1, so there shouldn't be anything too earth shattering here. But it does include APIs for gestures think flicking and scrolling which is new in Windows Mobile 6.5.Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit comes with the following Emulator:
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional QVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WQVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional VGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard QVGA Emulator

WM6.5 SDK will offer support for Windows Mobile 6.5 Gesture API. So for any developers out there who wish to have a play around with gesture controls, which is built in to Windows Mobile 6.5, then you had better get downloading now and install the SDK.

Re: Download SDK for Windows Mobile 6.5

Another major innovation is the Windows Mobile app store. So for these 2 new features Windows Mobile 6.5 is worth having and you shouldn't buy a phone that is not officially upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.5 or right away powered by Windows Mobile 6.5.Now that Windows Mobile 6.5 is finished, maybe work can now start on Windows Mobile 7.That?s obviously great news for fans as we look for a release, but as of yet, Windows Mobile 7 has been delayed until Spring 2010.
