I am new to WinCE. I don't know about its driver model.

Specifically, are drivers all linked with kernel or downloadable like linux modules? Can you develop a driver and add it to the phone?

Thanks.

Hi,
Some drivers can be installed however others have to be available at boot time to use the device. You should search Microsoft's site and look at their driver documentation.

I browsed through. Most docs talk about how to program drivers, which does not give me any idea whether downloadable drivers are OK or not.

Do you have any documents talking about that in your mind? Even the overview ones don't give such an answer. Strange. It makes me really wonder that all drivers are statically linked....
