Has anyone ever used any of the mobile versions of Windows that come on PDA phones? Can you install software intended for the full versions of Windows on them? Or does it only take downsized versions?
I'm thinking of getting a PDA phone for school/work and the only real options are Windows-based or Palm-based due to software availability.
It's been awhile since I have owned a pda, but generally no a standard windows program wouldn't work on them. PocketPC and all the derivations are dramatically different than say Windows XP. Besides the devices that run PocketPC (and the like) are very underpowered compared to a desktop/laptop and so the software that runs on them are often stripped down versions (if they have a desktop counterpart).
