SideShow SDK for devices

Microsoft's Windows SideShow development team recently unveiled a new beta of its Windows SideShow Device SDK for .Net Micro Framework 1.4, announcing several new supported features. Developers can now access a portrait-style QVGA interface designed for remote controls, and a new driver allows users to recognize devices over USB and Bluetooth connections, with new Bluetooth menu commands. The SDK now supports a user-swtiching UI for devices that operate in a particular user mode. Microsoft has also opened the kit up to Danish, Finnish, and Norwegian developers. Users interested in the beta are requested to contact the developer team through the supplied email address.

The addition of USB and Bluetooth connection support, as well as the QVGA interface, suggest that Microsoft is attempting to open SideShow to many different types of devices.
