        The Windows Mobile 6 SDKs add documentation, sample code, header and library files, emulator images and tools to Visual Studio that let you build applications for Windows Mobile 6.

        With Windows Mobile 6, we are revising our SKU taxonomy and naming to better align our brand and products with the realities of today’s mobile device marketplace. The historical form-factor based distinction between Windows Mobile powered Smartphone and Windows Mobile powered Pocket PC Phone Edition is blurring dramatically. We want our taxonomies and terminology to evolve to better reflect the evolution of the mobile device industry.

        The list below summarizes the changes and the SDK that must be used when targeting the platforms (Previous Categories = New Categories):

        • Windows Mobile for Smartphone = Windows Mobile Standard (download the Windows Mobile 6 Standard SDK)


        • Windows Mobile for Pocket PC = Windows Mobile Classic (download the Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK)


        • Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition = Windows Mobile Professional (download the Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK)



        The Windows Mobile 6 SDKs reflect these changes in the naming of "Project Templates" and "Emulator Images".

        The following emulator images are included in the SDKs:

        • Windows Mobile 6 Standard SDK
          • Windows Mobile 6 Standard (176x220 pixels - 96 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Standard Landscape QVGA (240x320 pixels - 131 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Standard QVGA (320x240 pixels - 131 dpi)
        • Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK
          • Windows Mobile 6 Classic (240x320 pixels - 96 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Professional (240x320 pixels - 96 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Professional Square (240x240 pixels - 96 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Professional Square QVGA (320x320 pixels - 128 dpi)
          • Windows Mobile 6 Professional Square VGA (480x480 pixels - 192 dpi)
