There is some hope for you.  Meanwhile the entire GnuPG-2 system has
been ported to that OS.  Our target device is the HTC touch pro 2 but I
don't think that we use any HTC specific API.  See

which also has a link to an installer.  Well this is only command line
and thus not very useful unless you succeed installing sshd on the
device (we have a package for that as well somewhere, can't remember the
URL, though) and then use putty for Wince to get a terminal.  

Writing a simple application to encrypt the clipboard should not be very
hard if you are used to native Windows programming.  GPGME is fully
ported and takes care of invoking the required GnuPG modules.

There are some little things missing: For example we can't easily import
an OpenPGP key - that is something I am going to implement next week.
Dirmngr needs to be started manually - that should me fixed by Monday/

The final plan is to have KDEPIM running on the box.  We are currently
shrinking the KDE code and working on tricks to stuff all the code into
the "interesting" virtual memory architecture.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
