These days mobile devices are part of our life style and most of us cant live with out them. When these mobile devices are connected to the Internet, the powers of the mobile devices are endless. We can deliver timely data to the user at any place and any time. Traditionally mobile applications are developed using WML, WMLScript and WBMP with a server.

For dynamic WML applications, developers used ASP, JSP, PHP, etc. Still these applications serve WML on the fly. The Mobile Devices includes Cell Phones, Two Way Pagers, Palm Pilots, Pocket PCs and Auto PCs. Few of these devices support WML, few support HTML and few support both WML and HTML. If you want to satisfy all the mobile devices then you must build your application in both WML and limited HTML.

Recently, Microsoft introduced a revolutionary application development platform called the .NET Framework. This .NET framework includes ASP.NET (next version of ASP) for Web development. ASP.NET-based Web development supports traditional Web clients such as IE and Netscape as well as mobile clients such as, Nokia Cell phones and Pocket PCs. ASP.NET applications can be developed on any .NET enabled language such as VB.NET (Next version of VB), JScript, Managed C++, C# (Pronounced as C Sharp), etc. In this article well see how to develop mobile applications using the .NET Mobile Web SDK, ASP.NET and VB.NET.
