-SDL supports GAPI and WinDib output for Windows CE.
-
-GAPI driver supports:
-
-- all possible WinCE devices (Pocket PC, Smartphones, HPC)
-  with different orientations of video memory and resolutions.
-- 4, 8 and 16 bpp devices
-- special handling of 8bpp on 8bpp devices
-- VGA mode, you can even switch between VGA and GAPI in runtime
-  (between 240x320 and 480x640 for example). On VGA devices you can
-  use either GAPI or VGA.
-- Landscape mode and automatic rotation of buttons and stylus coordinates.
-  To enable landscape mode make width of video screen bigger than height.
-  For example: 
-    SDL_SetVideoMode(320,240,16,SDL_FULLSCREEN)
-- WM2005
-- SDL_ListModes
