You should use Qt for Windows CE as a starting point:


Assuming you're doing this as an open source project, the package can be
found here:

Take a look at these pages:


It looks like you will need Visual Studio plus an SDK to build Qt from source
for Windows CE, and I imagine you'll need to build Python, SIP and PyQt with
the same tools. I don't develop on Windows, so I've no idea what the issues
are when it comes to getting all these to work together.

If I were you, I would start by trying to get a working Qt library and Python
interpreter for the device you have, then try to build SIP and PyQt bindings
for QtCore.
