C# would be my thoughts. Possibly consider a C#/WPF project if graphics are going to be involved.

For mobile development you may want to try QT which was produced by Nokia for just that type of development.

QT is C++ based though isn't it? As it's designed for symbian? ... That's gonna be a lot harder to pick up then C# .Net

It is C++ based but I would not say that makes it harder than C# to pick up if you started from the position of knowing nothing about either of them. Syntactically they are really quite similar.

The QT library is certainly a lot easier that the .NET library to pick up (if only because it smaller).

On the other hand I am not sure if QT supports Win CE 5.0 as I didn't pick that up on my first read of the thread.


Also of course C++ is far more portable than C# and the QT library is also portable to several platforms.

Yeah, that is a definite up side.

Rarely a drag and drop interface for Nokia products though... does QT have that?
