Not long after announcing that Windows Mobile 6.5 is complete, Microsoft has now released the WM 6.5 SDK (software development kit).
The SDK allows developers to not only test Windows Mobile 6.5, but also to start developing apps for the new OS.
The WM 6.5 SDK comes with a new set of APIs (application programming interfaces) which “enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework.”
From the Emulator Images that are made available, we know that Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard supports only QVGA displays, while Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional supports the following resolutions: QVGA, WQVGA, VGA and WVGA. Well, that’s actually not a surprise.
To download the Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK and see the Instructions / Required software, head on over to Microsoft’s official website.
