As a christmas gift to myself, I decided to purchase a Dell Axim 30. Why? Well, Ive always wanted something like a PDA to help me get my contacts and todo lists organized... and this thing can also play MP3s, OggVorbis, photo slide shows, take voice memos, it comes with WiFi, infared, and Bluetooth, its smaller than a Palm, faster than an iPaq, and only $250. That's less than an iPod, and I might be able to hack it to even play music through Michelle's Bluetooth enabled Mini. It has just about everything I need in a pocket computer.
It should be arriving next Friday, so in anticipation Ive been searching the internet for links to applications, and developer tools. I'll probably hack away with Python on it, but if I develop any 'serious' apps, I'd probably use C#.
- Python for WinCE with TKinter
- pyWin32, build for CE seems possible, but not yet done
- PythonCE mailing list archives
C, C#, and .NET:
- PocketPC C# Compiler
- Compiling PocketPC .NET apps without Visual Studio
