Very smart move by Microsoft.

Having developed with Microsoft mobile platforms since CE 1.0, I've never found them to really understand mobile that well. Kind of ironic that their greatest financial success could potentially now be for them to do nothing other than collect royalty payments!

Microsoft has also sued Motorola for infringing on their tech so they will most probabily pony up some money soon as well for every android handset they will sell. Google does not protects it's OEM partner's from any lawsuits. They IP portfolio is very weak.

My job involves working with a variety of mainly Pocket PC or Windows CE devices, setting up GPRS connections over cable and/or Bluetooth. Setting up of these connections is either done programatically (in code) or manually (when all else fails).

Through this work (which sometimes involves visiting other parts of the world), I've come up with, err, I'd hate to call it a "wealth of information", but let's just say that I've struck enough problems over the last few years that I'm sure that SOMEBODY out there might benefit from some of the tips that I'll be putting up.
