While Windows Mobile 6.5 was officially launched October last year, so far Microsoft hasn't offered an updated SDK (Software Development Kit) for its latest Windows Mobile version. But yesterday, Microsoft silently launched the Windows Mobile 6.5 SDKs which provide documentation, sample code, header and library files, emulator images and tools which can be used with Microsoft's Visual Studio to build applications for Windows Mobile 6.5. The Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK must also be installed in order to use any of the Windows Mobile 6.5 API or samples. It comes with the images for Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional (touchscreen smartphone) and Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard (non-touchscreen) and features different language-sets.

I don't think it's much use releasing the Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK at this late stage.

Is anyone still developing for Windows Mobile 6.X? This platform is about to be phased out for Microsoft's new mobile OS. We're basically at the end of the line with 6.X.

I have my doubts as to whether many devs will bother with the new platform, either.

I somewhat agree - if rumors are right and we will really see Windows Mobile 7 announced in Barcelona. Nevertheless, there are tons of vertical market applications available as well as some great consumer applications the developers might want to adopt for Windows Mobile 6.5. So yes, I agree that it might makes less sense today to develop completely new applications for Windows Mobile 6.5 the first time but it definitely makes sense to adopt previous Windows Mobile 5.0 or Windows Mobile 6 application to Windows Mobile 6.5 or even Windows Mobile 6.5.3. At this point we don't know when Windows Mobile 7 will be available.

There are some nice features in the sdk, particularly for those doing Windows Mobile widget development.  More details in this overview -  http://community.softteq.com/blogs/nick … rview.aspx
