Today we are talking about the Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld. The Embedded 8.1 Handheld OS is built on Windows Phone 8.1 and is targetted at building business handheld devices. Devices such as Mobile POS, Scanning Devices, Package Delivery Devices use this OS. The Embedded OS keeps in mind the requirements of handheld devices and also holds within the capability and power to harness the rich features of the Windows Phone 8.1.
The point we noted is that the Embedded 8.1 Handheld is built on Windows Phone 8.1 and an SDK is available for Download along with an Emulator. The SDK and its documentation are here: http
Nothing to stop us now. We picked our Worklight apps, built it for Windows Phone and deployed it on to the Embedded 8.1 Handheld Emulator. Worklight Applications run smoothly with Windows Embedded 8.1 Handheld. Worklight features like hybrid app with Cordova, Notifications, Authentication and Security, JSON Store, Direct Update were tested. The features work as smoothly as they would in a Windows Phone.
We will continue to test the working with next versions and updates. Is your organization planning to move to Windows Embedded ? We'd love to hear from you.
