For the record, all modern mobile SDKs that I know of use Thumb as the 
default instruction set for native code compilation. And with Thumb-2 on 
ARMv7 cores, the performance is on par between ARM and Thumb. The 
original Thumb, years ago, was compiled to ARM, but not any longer.

Thumb may even beat ARM occasionally, because more code fits into a 
cache line. And I won't be surprised if newer cores start optimizing for 
Thumb at the expense of ARM.

Windows CE is not modern :)
