"Mobile .NET" begins by educating the reader about a wide variety of different wireless Internet devices. These devices are divided into two main divisions: those that are directly supported by .NET (Pocket PCs, i-Mode phones, and WAP devices), and those that are not (Palm OS and J2ME-powered devices).

In the middle section of the book, the advantages of .NET as a development platform are introduced. a .NET Web Application - capable of serving up stock quotes to virtually any wireless device - is produced as an exercise, continuing from one chapter to the next. The section concludes with a demonstration of how .NET Web Services, the cornerstone of Microsoft's new "programmable internet," can be invoked from each of the wireless devices mentioned above. "Mobile .NET" concludes by drilling deep down into the technologies provided by .NET specifically for use with wireless devices. The Mobile Internet Toolkit, which can automatically adapt the output of a .NET Web Application based upon the special needs of differing client devices, is discussed first.
