Pocket PC vs. Pocket PC Phone Edition (2002)

Hi there,

Could anyone point me to a resource that outlines the differences between
the Pocket PC 200 and Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition platforms?

Thanks very much in advance.


More Info : When running a dot net compact framework app on Pocket PC I have
no problems, but on the phone edition I get a "NotSupportedException" when I
try to end an asynchronous call to a webservice.

A Pocket PC Phone Edition is a Pocket PC plus voice and data functionalities
for GSM and CDMA.
Best to check is Microsoft's www.pocketpc.com

Found the bug in my app - turns out it wasnt an incompatibility between
them after all.

Thanks anyway Arne :)

The only differences are aspects that relate to the phone functions...

The pocketpc functionality is identical... all programs run the same as
on a pocketpc and the default programs such as Word and WMP are the same.

Most current phone editions ship with 2002 where all new pocketpc's ship
with 2003... that could change today.

The phone functionality links to standard pim and other apps... for
example dialing from a contact's listing, notes that record number
called/time/date/etc sms capabilities, cellular data connection capabilities
