    Phone control on the smartdevice

    I have to say I'm a bit disappointed in MS for the lack of a nice managed api for phone control. You'd think a powerful phone api would be a priority for a smartphone....but all we get now is a single class and a single Call() method....gripe, gripe, gripe. But, at least most things are possible with native libraries wrapped....but work. (Do I really love TAPI and COM?)

    Generate DTMF on SmartPhone/PocketPC via C# at runtime - MSDN Forums - not answered really...
    This indicates you can do the whole 'p' for pause on the dial, but you want to initiate the DTMF in call on demand. There are URL protocol handlers to do it...

    How do you detect DTMF? I don't know if this is possible?

    What to do if the Phone Rings - State and Notifications Broker (SNAPI) to detect calls and get out da way.

    Pocket Outlook Object Model

    Since the Smart phones revolve around PIM type information, the first and most important set of tools to get a handle on when developing in Windows Mobile would be the Outlook Object Model.  This is a set of objects that allow you to access the contact, task, calendar, etc. information from the Pocket Outlook object store.

    .NET Micro Framework

    The .NET Micro framework is a CLR runtime that runs on embedded devices. This means Windows CE/Windows Mobile is not required for its application. It is made for small processors and allows managed code access to low level device interfaces. Interesting to say the least.

    Deployment and debugging smart device applications

    When developing mobile software it is nice to use the emulator. It is faster to turn code through the emulator than to test everything on a physical device. A few notes on working with the emulator:
    1) Make sure you have ActiveSync installed and running. Then, right-click its tray icon and choose "Connection Settings" from the context menu. Make sure the check box for "Allow connections to one of the following:" is checked and select "DMA" in the combo box.
    2) Then in Visual Studio, go to the Tools menu and select "Device Emulator Manager..." to manage the activesync cradle functionality.
    3) If you get issues with certificates during deployment, you'll want to install the "Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\SmartDevices\SDK\SDKTools\VSDCerts.cab" development certificates.

    Mobile databases

    Data is king. Thankfully, MS is packaging an in-process relational database engine. It is also nice that it runs on all Windows platforms including Windows XP, Vista, Pocket PC, and Smartphone. They are also giving us some very powerful tools, like LINQ for Mobile!

    WCF on Mobile

    WCF is some exciting bits. The power of programming by contract on multiple transports is very powerful indeed. The compact framework 3.5 now includes WCF with multiple bindings....though some are missing.

    NetCFSvcUtil.exe, enables you to generate a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) client proxy.
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\bin\NetCFSvcUtil.exe"

    (NetCFSvcUtil.exe proxies can be generated only for services that are exposed through basicHttpBinding or email transports. WCF for NETCF includes a subset of WS-Security.)
