AppForge Unveils MobileVB for Windows Mobile 2003 Devices

7/10/2003 - AppForge announces immediate availability of MobileVB support for Windows Mobile 2003 (Pocket PC 2003) handhelds. AppForge MobileVB enables developers to use Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual Studio to write applications for Pocket PC 2003 devices like the hp iPaq and Dell Axim models.

“AppForge’s primary goal is to enable Microsoft developers to write applications for the most popular mobile devices on the market,” said Doug Benson, AppForge’s Vice President of Marketing. “More than 80,000 AppForge MobileVB developers have written thousands of applications targeted for the most utilized Palm, Pocket PC, and Symbian devices on the market.”

Many AppForge enterprise developers target Pocket PC devices for their enterprise applications. Extending support to the new Pocket PC 2003 devices enables these developers to successfully migrate these applications to the latest devices from Dell and HP. This support also enables developers to quickly support new devices that are scheduled to reach the market soon from Gateway, Viewsonic, and Toshiba, to name a few.

“MobileVB developers rely on AppForge to enable them to develop applications for the latest and greatest mobile devices,” Benson continued. “Adding support for Pocket PC 2003 devices continues to substantiate AppForge’s mission. Today, applications developed with MobileVB will run on over 90% of mobile and devices on the market, and we continually work with leading OEMs to support the latest devices.”
