In the next generation of Windows Mobile Devices, .NET developers will have easy access to email, SMS, contacts, calendar, and tasks through managed classes that wrap around the key portions of the native APIs. These .NET Compact Framework classes will provide mechanisms for creation, deletion, enumeration, sorting, searching, copying, and comparing. Unlike the native APIs where developers must work with four models (POOM, MAPI, SMS, and SMS Intercept) the new managed APIs will provide all of these features in a unified manner.
