My task: build a stocktaking app for Pocket PC using delphi and sql server.  It should work in batch mode only (disconnected for data entry and then "cradled" for synchronization of batched transactions).  

Is this possible? If so, please give me as much information as possible regarding how to get started.

  Would you like to build Delphi Application that will rut in PocketPC?, that's imposible, because Delphi compiler generate excutable filesf for Intel platform and windows only, so there's no way to run in PocketPC

Delphi for .Net will be able to create PocketPC applications, but it's still in preview, if you have Delphi 7, the preview comes with it, so you can try that, but the final still not released

if you mean communcatiting with PocketPC, you can try CETools components from Tmssoftware

Thanks.  Can Delphi be used to build applications for a mobile device OS?  Which one?

  you can use PocketStudio to build Palm Application, it's based on Pascal with similar IDE like Delphi

for more about Mobile programming with Delphi look at

  you can create web application and work with WML, so the mobiles that support WAP will be able to view these pages, but that's not an application will install on the mobile
if you have Delphi 6 Developer's Guide, the last chapter explain how to work with Wireless Development using WML
