SQL CE 3.5 and VS 2005

I am using SQL CE 2.0 and VS 2005. This app will be deployed on device with OS CE 5.0. Now since SQL CE 2.0 does not support SET IDENTITY INSERT, I decided to move to SQL CE 3.5. But a few questions:

1. Can I safely deploy app with SQL CE 3.5 in production which is still in Beta 2?

2. Can I use VS 2005 with SQL CE 3.5?

    My Device app will be a small part of the actual web. This will just  perform inserts, updates, select and delete. No T_SQL or SP. All SQL will be in the code. No special features of SQL will be used. Even then, SQL CE 3.5 is not safe?
