9.3 Summary

As you can see, writing applications for mobile devices can now be fun and productive. Whether you are going to write Web Application targeting mobile devices or applications that actually run on these devices, .NET would have you well covered. The Mobile Controls as well as the Compact Framework are now part of the standard .NET 1.1 to ensure that all aspects of the enterprise are taken care of. Thanks to great tools such as VS.NET, application developers no longer worry about the tedious legwork of setting up the environment, debugging tools, the SDK, emulators, and so on, and devote all their time to developing the business logic for the mobile application.
