In The Hand Ltd have created a component to allow you to take advantage of the Silverlight for Windows Embedded User Interface runtime from within .NET Compact Framework applications. This allows you to create managed code applications for embedded devices using the power of Expression Blend and XAML to create compelling user experiences while also supporting the power and flexibility of the .NET Compact Framework 3.5. Code written for XAML In The Hand is compatible with Silverlight 3 and some features of Silverlight 4. This can simplify the task of porting Windows Phone and desktop Silverlight applications to Windows Embedded devices.
Version 7.7 adds further functionality on top of the XAML Runtime with improved performance and add-on libraries for gesture recognition, Frame and Page navigation and Windows 8 / Windows Phone styles for base controls.
