For VB programmers, there is another possible alternative for multi-platform development. NS BASIC from NS Basic Corporation offers support for Windows CE (Pocket PC, including Windows Mobile 2003), Palm (OS 5 and Cobalt), and Newton. NS Basic is an eVB (eMbedded Visual Basic) look-alike, though it offers up to 25X the performance of eVB. Demo versions are available for download.
I'll contact them to see if they have anything interesting to say to us as a group.
