Yes, but what framework?

Yes, you will be able to develop Mobile 5 apps with VS 2003, however - Is the device going to be running .Net CF 1.1 or 2.0? If it's running 2.0 then you will be required to use Visual Studio 2005

How do I tell what version my device is running. It is an i-Mate JasJam running windows mobile 5.0.

Determine the working framework

Well.. you can look in the system information on the device.... or you can install the 2.0 .net framework if you already have VS 2005 and just start developing, or you can create an application in VS 2003 (a hello world) and see if it runs on your device... if it does, then your running 1.1 most likely. Or you could re-install 1.1 on the device just to be sure.
