    Symbian OS is an entire mobile platform in C++.

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Well, having Windows Mobile. The default is Visual studio which currently costs too much. So what is the alternative, C? Raw programming, I'd call it with no IDE.

    I actually do have VS 2008 pro edition, but the trial version. So you see my point, if I can't complete my project for WM 2003 in time. Another alternative...I don't like that app, I've used it before a long while ago.

    Um, so

    Those are the only tools I know of - free, trial, or cough up some $$.

    Question

    Vs 05 costs up to 200. I'd have to wait until 50-70.

    Would Palm have any chance with C?

    Whats the deal with your '08 demo? I use 2008, does your trial not have the ability to create mobile apps?

    I assume "in time" means before the trial runs out. So it's capable, but the clock is ticking...

    My Nokia E65 runs on Symbian S60, and as far as I can Nokia is not a Japanese firm (though the lines are blurred these days with MNCs). There appear to be tools targeted for Symbian S60 available at zero price.
