Microsoft Pocket PC 2003 -- Windows APP ?

I am thinking about purchasing 100+
http://www.usedhandhelds.com/products/Symbol-PDT8046-Barcode-Scanner-w%7B47%7DWiFi.html 
$99 devices so employees can enter TimeCard data.

Currently I use VisualStudio 2010 to create C# WinForms APPS.

Does anyone have links on how to create a
"Microsoft Pocket PC 2003" app that accesses
Oracle or MSSQL ?

Below is one link I found.

erm, Mikal613, you're not exactly right because VS2008 works perfectly well with Windows Mobile 5.x onwards (not PPC 2003 of course) ;)

To build for PPC 2003 (that's how it was called officially) one needs VS2005 Standard or Professional or eVC++ if you can still find one :)
MSSQL has to be installed on the devices.
