Microsoft This is getting ridiculous. Windows Embedded Handheld? And to make it worse, there are two different versions of Windows Embedded Handheld coming out, each based on a different underlying OS.

Really? Just Windows and windows phone? What about whatever the Kin runs? Its different than windows phone 7, and new. Also, MS has also said that windows mobile 6.5 will stick around for some phones ( like the HD2 )!

Way back when, I was a developer that had to support windows mobile apps. It wasn't too difficult with only one OS to aim for. The code from the windows codebase could mostly be shared, but the UI had to be simplified. I think anyone writing windows mobile apps today would have somewhat of a difficult time explaining to customers what devices their apps were compatible with. We could just tell them to not get a HP Jordana, cause it was slow as heck.
