AppForge Enables Microsoft Visual Studio Developers to Write Applications for New Dell Pocket PCs

12/20/2002 - AppForge announces immediate availability of MobileVB support for Dell Axim X5 handhelds. AppForge MobileVB enables developers to use Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual Studio to write applications for Dell's new devices.

"One of AppForge's primary benefits is enabling Microsoft developers to write applications for mobile devices that they could not otherwise target," said Doug Benson, AppForge's Vice President of Marketing. "We have over 80,000 AppForge MobileVB developers who, over the last two years, have written thousands of applications for Palm OS, PocketPC and Symbian devices."

AppForge support of Dell's Axim X5 handhelds enables enterprise customers to quickly migrate existing applications and easily create new applications for Dell's handheld PCs. By equipping enterprise customers with such a powerful mobile application platform, Dell handhelds can gain a stronghold in the enterprise.

"MobileVB developers have come to expect that AppForge will quickly enable them to move their applications to the latest and greatest mobile devices," Benson continued. "Today, applications developed with MobileVB will run on over 90% of mobile and devices on the market, and we are continually working with leading manufacturers to support their upcoming devices."
