Mobile PC Partner News

If you’re a software developer interested in Tablet PCs, and you haven’t registered yet for the Mobile PC Partner Program you probably should head over and take advantage of this important resource. (Here’s the link.) This month’s newsletter just came out and included with it is a survey under the heading, Help Plan The Future of Tablet PCs. The Mobile PC Partner Program offers developers (and also the community at large) a host of resources including a series of webcasts currently focusing on applications optimized for Mobile PCs. (See the upcoming schedule below.) They also spotlight mobile applications. This month’s featured application is Einstein Tech (that’s Josh Einstein in case you didn’t figure that out) developer of TEO 3.0 and OneNote Calendar.


For those who might have missed one of the recent webcasts (I know several folks were asking this about the iGuidance application) they have also posted links to the recorded versions. (Follow the links below.)

All in all, a good resource to keep you up on what’s happening in the Mobile arena.
