Pocket PC is a Platform based on an Adaptation Kit that lies on top of
Windows CE 3.0.

Basically it's a CE 3.0 device that has added applications and libraries on
top of it.

thank you, that clears things up a bit.  it seems there is Pocketpc for
PDA's as well as pocketpc, phone edition.  Then there is the smartphone 2002
*platform*.  all of which are based on windows ce ?  the difference being
the APIs available and the SDK used to target the specific platform ?

i think im getting there, the fog is lifting

BTW - i just installed eVB and its working great.  especially the emulator
and built in de{*filter*}.  this is just like VB6 so far

thanks again

Pocket PC is a special configuration of Windows CE 3.0.  It defines the
minimum software and hardware configuration for a device which is referred
to as a Pocket PC.

All Pocket PCs of the same version have the same base API, therefore they
can use the same SDK.

Don't be surprised that this is confusing, it is to a lot of new Windows CE
developers.  The world of embedded development is different than desktop
development.
