Windows Mobile 6.1 Emulators Out

With the release of Windows Mobile 6.1 and some models already announced, it was only logical that we would see the WM 6.1 emulators out for Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008.

Just like their predecessors, the emulators are stand alone and can be used outside of Visual Studio. They seem to work like a charm (so far no bugs to report).

One new feature to report is that since there have been a few devices with new resolution screens, the emulator now supports those as well.
