I hope Minimo Windows CE builds for PDAs will include SH3 processor devices.
Is that the case?

I dont know that there are any plancs to support anything but CE on ARM/xscale based processors. I can look into it more for you.

Thanks, I would appreciate that.
I wonder if there's any special feature that requires the use of arm/xscale processors, or it would mostly be the case of changing the build target options in the makefiles, since the microsoft embedded c++ compiler supports sh3, at least for PPC 2000.
I also saw around here that only PPC 2003 and possibly PPC 2002 will be supported. Are there any features being used that require these versions of the windows ce to be used? Since (I suppose) the browser is probably going to rely on fairly general tcp/ip functions (i.e no smb, redirectors, ms clients etc) and some fairly general gui components, I think it would be possible (in theory) to compile the same code using the PPC 2000 SDK targeting the SH3 processor. Am I missing something?
Regards,

I think it would be changing the built target options when compiling. You might be able to get the source and build your own version. Developer info can be found here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/minimo/develop.html
