Last Modified: 2013-12-27
I am building an application for Windows CE 6.0 devices and currently using the emulator. I want to buy couple of those devices that are pre-loaded with Direct3D Mobile so I can do some testing. How can I obtain such devices? The devices must be a CE 6.0 and I need to have the ability to add software components according to our need.

Thank you

I used to find stuff on eBay. As alexey said, identify the devices first. You can also lookup on Microsoft's site and find parters for Windows CE / Mobile development, and contact them for CE specific expertise. I forget how to get to the list of vendors, but I know it is there somewhere. I believe if you wish to purchase the Platform Builder, MS used to direct you to partners.


Thank you for your replies. I want to put a GPS system on one of these devices and the graphics is built using Direct3D. Does that narrow the search?
WinCE devices are usually 'custom' in a sense that vendors don't sell them in shops :)

In a first place, why do you want it to be WinCE 6.0? anyway, this site gives you pretty much wide picture:


Direct3D is usually checked in PB catalog, so it should be present in 90% of the devices.
