Windows Vista and Mobile Devices

Windows Mobile Device Center (Beta 3 Release) for Windows Vista RC1
This is also under a new category, Mobility Musings (I get bored, so I invent categories, can you blame me?).
It’s my understanding that Windows Vista is supposed to allow synchronization ‘out-of-the-box’* with Windows Mobile devices, but I waited until after I’d installed the beta version of the new Windows Mobile Device Center to try and synch.
I can verify that (once installed) I was able to successfully complete a full synchronisation using this kit.  I haven’t tried to debug a CF 2.0 device (yet), and I don’t know how compatible it is with Visual Studio 2005.

Next Mobility Musing: SQL Server Compact Edition redux (was: SQL Server Everywhere Edition) and why I think renaming it (again) is a stupid idea.
Bonus Reader Competition: Suggest a new blog category.  You suggest it, I’ll write about it.  Prize: TBD (based on the winning category)
*Disclaimer: I haven’t tried to synch a Windows Mobile device with the out-of-the-box (i.e. no addon required) Windows Vista.
