     5 SDL supports GAPI and WinDib output for Windows CE.
     4 We have left the CE support in SDL 1.2 for those that must have it, and we
       
     5 will accept patches that support more modern Windows Mobile platforms for
       
     6 SDL 2.0.

     9 
     9 - all possible WinCE devices (Pocket PC, Smartphones, HPC)
       
    10   with different orientations of video memory and resolutions.
       
    11 - 4, 8 and 16 bpp devices
       
    12 - special handling of 8bpp on 8bpp devices
       
    13 - VGA mode, you can even switch between VGA and GAPI in runtime
       
    14   (between 240x320 and 480x640 for example). On VGA devices you can
       
    15   use either GAPI or VGA.
       
    16 - Landscape mode and automatic rotation of buttons and stylus coordinates.
       
    17   To enable landscape mode make width of video screen bigger than height.
       
    18   For example: 
       
    19     SDL_SetVideoMode(320,240,16,SDL_FULLSCREEN)
       
    20 - WM2005
       
    21 - SDL_ListModes
