The problem I see with Mono/.NET is to find a GUI-toolkit that works good enough on both Mac and the Microsoft platforms. In my opinion, this means that Winforms is not yet an option. I'm not aware of any gtk/gtk# port for Pocket PC.

If you go with Java, I would suggest to use SWT, which is included in the personal profile version of IBM j9 on Pocket PC. SWT is also available on OS X and Windows.
