Anyone know if you can transfer word documents from Windows CE 6.0 which is the OS on many 7" mini netbooks, over to Windows 7. I am a screenwriter, and I would like to write on the go, so I would like something with a keyboard as opposed to touch screen. I've seen many for under $100 so that's pretty much my limit.

Thanks for any info.

If your Windows CE device is x86-based, then I don't see why not. If it's ARM-based, I don't know, but I'm doing a little research on it.

This reference is very dated, but I don't see why you couldn't save the document as an RTF file, and transfer it that way.

First paragraph.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.
