This is a list per CPU (ARM + ARM PXA + ARM STRONGARM + MIPS + SH3 + Intel XScale), and lists company/model/CPU/OS. If you would like to know what processor your PocketPC uses, read the manual or have a look at our extensive list of companies & models further on in this article. The OS is Windows CE 3.0. PocketPC 2002 devices solely use ARM compatible processors. The OS is Windows CE 3.0. Pocket PC 2003 devices solely use ARM4 compatible processors, and their OS is Windows CE.NET 4.1 or 4.2.
