    Ist there a Windows Mobile Browser Emulator

    spuyear
      As I continue converting my website to one usable on most mobile devices, I found that my site displays well in all devices EXCEPT Windows Mobile browser. I am unable to test my site in that environment since I do not use a Windows Mobile device.

      Is there a Windows Mobile emulator/simulator available on which I can test the look of my website? I know about BrowserCam and BrowserShots and neither are a right fit. ResearchInMotion offers a great BlabkBerry simulator and I am hoping that there is a similar tool for the Windows Mobile environment. Thanks!

              I thank you both for the replies. Unfortunately, neither exactly answers my question. I use Device Central, and it is GREAT. I also use the sites that Nancy recommends.

              Unfortunately, both suggestions display what the site will look like with SSR. Since BlackBerry, Palm and Windows Mobile devices don't use SSR standard, my site displays differently on those devices.

              I have been able to see what the site looks on BrackBerry and Palm using thier Simulators, but I have not found a similar tool for Windows Mobile.
