Hi,

I want to write an easy app with Opengl.

I will execute it in a PDA with Windows CE 5.0, and i want to write it on Visual Basic or Visual C#.

What is your advise? Is my idea possible?

PD: I read for mobile devices is better to use another release of OpenGL. Is that true?

Yes, for this OpenGL ES (for "Embedded Systems) would be more suitable.

You need an implementation of GL ES for your PDA, you can search here :

It's called OpenGL ES (www.khronos.org)

BTW the khronos group will become the new ARB

Go to the Khronos site and look for a link to the 'Vincent' project. It's a software-based GL implementation that will run on ARM-processor based PDA's. I have used it in a commercial app that has done reasonably well. It's stable and well - engineered.
