Review

"In their book, Andreas and Christian provide the necessary linkage between the popular program development environments and the explosive growth potential exhibited by the Pocket PC platform. The key to continued growth and productivity in the smart handheld device market is the development of the next wave of applications. "Andreas and Christian take a unique approach by focusing on the enterprise and their view of the Pocket PC as a logical extension of the enterprise and the next access device. For clarity and ease of learning, the authors develop a series of applications focused upon a fictitious company. By following the examples, the reader becomes acquainted with the business processes and is walked through the code that brings those processes to the Pocket PC. "As a result, this book becomes an important contribution to the literature supporting the move towards smart handheld devices and the growth of Pocket PC as an enabling operating environment. Enjoy!" " from the foreword by Ted Clark, Vice President, iPAQ Mobile Solutions, Compaq" "Mobile devices and wireless bandwidth have matured and converged to enable great mobile enterprise solutions. Andreas and Christian enable you to quickly take advantage of this high-growth area" "Lenn Pryor, Lead Product Manager, Mobility Group, Microsoft Corporation" "This book convinced me that EVB is a viable language for Pocket PC development. It is a must for serious Visual Basic developers targeting Pocket PC. I am impressed by the authors' excellent use of EVB for developing mobile enterprise solutions." "Chris M. Muench, Siemens' technology ambassador to Microsoft and author of "The Windows CE Technology Tutorial" (Addison-Wesley, 2001)"

2.0 out of 5 stars Between begginer and serious but lost the focus Jan. 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
In my opinion this is a book built arround a very good example of an application, but not a book to start with nor a book for the experts.
The introduction goes fast jumping from subject to subject without showing a clear direction to teach you either logic, approach, language, conventions or how to better understand the environment (developing environment)
The fact of talking about visual basic makes me think instantly that there will be a smooth transition till you are up to speed and then jump to more complex examples, in this book it is a collection of picks and tricks in a messy way in order to prepare you without too much explanation so they can explain "real" application written in VB.
Funnily the application itself is very informative and useful but by the time you arrive there there are too many questions running wild on your head and is quite fustrating.

When I picked this book up I was pleased to find useful tools and tips included in both the book and on the CD. The code for the datetimepicker alone pretty much justifies the cost of the book in my opinion. Having the embedded Visual Tools, SQLCE, and the other tools all on one CD is also a good thing.
