Handheld PC Hardware & Hardware Compatibility

Windows CE was designed to be an all in one integrated solution. Its aim was to provide all the features needed by business users to seamlessly organise their daily lives with the minimum of fuss involved.

This section provides you with resources on Windows CE hardware upgrades and accessories.

Compatible Software & Apps

The Software Compatibility List (SCL) provides is the App Store that Windows CE and the Handhel PC never had. Browser, search and explore decades of Windows CE H/PC software programmes. Download the installer files for your host or cab files for direct install on your devices directly from the SCL. You can get involved too by letting us know what you thought of a program and help others in the community to make informed choices about programs by sharing knowledge of its compatiblity.

Compatible Peripherals & Add-ons
