    Can someone give a concise answer to this, please:

    I have a need to develop an app for the Pocket PC, which will
    communicate with another device via the serial port / Bluetooth. I
    plan to use Visual Studio.net, but the question is: can I do it using
    VB.NET (which I know quite well) or do I have to start wrestling with
    C++ or C#?

    If the latter, can anyone recommend some good sites or books to get me
    started? I know C++, but not the Visual version in VS.NET.

    Thanks,

    Peter Royle

    Peter,
    Starting with Visual Studio .NET 2003, you can now use VB.NET or C#
    to create Pocket PC applications.

    Visual Studio .NET 2003 even includes the Pocket PC Emulator, etc...
