Today saw the start of MIX 10, Microsoft’s 3 day conference for web designers and developers, and it was all about Windows Phone 7 Series aka WP7 (or Windows Mobile 7 as you might call it).
They announced the availability of a comprehensive set of free tools to support developing Silverlight apps on WP7. This can be download from:
and includes previews of:
· Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
· Windows Phone 7 Series add-in to use with Visual Studio 2010 RC1
· XNA Game Studio 4.0
· Windows Phone 7 Series Emulator for application testing
· Expression Blend for Windows Phone CTP (available as a separate download).
I’m not a developer, although I often wish I was, and this is one of those times! Go get it and make some brilliant apps that will bring me, and countless others, back to the WinMo fold 🙂
