DesktopWeb FormText   new article : /umpcFrame (UMPC meets MCE)Thu, 06 Sep 2007 03:34:48 GMT # 

/umpcFrame is a prototype app for using a UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) as a secondary-display / virtual-remote for MCE (Media Center Edition PC). its comprised of 2 parts : 1) a WPF app which runs on the UMPC. 2) a background add-in that runs in MCE. they communicate with each other using WCF over a local network (line of sight is not needed).

its not ready for public usage, but the source code is provided. there is also a video of the app being used.

i'd love to get feedback on how you would use a UMPC with MCE. and in general, what other apps do you want for a UMPC?
