Non pocket pc application runnable on pocket pc?
      #18026 - 12/11/04 12:22 PM

I'm new to pocket pcs, but I know a bit about pcs. I'm trying to find a pocket pc capable of running "PartyPoker" via my home wireless network. The application was built for windows in 800X600. My question is can the application even run on a pocket pc and if so will it automatically compress the graphics to fit? If that doesn't work, anyone have any other suggestion? My laptop died and I was looking for a smaller, more battery friendly device to surf the internet, check email, and most importantly play partypoker. Thanks in advance for any suggestions/comments.

You can only run Pocket PC applications on a Pocket PC.

Calm down. The answer says it all: only Pocket PC apps run on Pocket PCs. This means that nothing else will run on a Pocket PC. Not PC, Palm, Linux apps and etc. You can only run PC apps on a PC, not on a PDA of any kind.
