    Post Things to know about Windows Phone 7 Series

    1. If you're already using Microsoft's core Windows and Web development tools and frameworks, you're qualified to start creating Windows Phone applications.


    2. Though Windows Phone 7 supports multi-tasking, due to the underlying Windows Embedded CE R3 kernel, developers won't have access to it in the initial release.

    3. Native applications are not permitted on Windows Phone 7 devices.

    4. Developer access to Microsoft SQL Server Compact, a free SQL Server embedded database, is not part of the initial release, so your database options are limited to start with.

    5. Windows Phone 7 as the "cloud phone". SQL Azure is only one of the cloud services that Microsoft wants to exploit with Windows Phone 7.

    6. Windows Marketplace is intended to be the sole means of finding and downloading phone applications, but Microsoft is promising "alternatives" that will let an enterprise customer distribute applications to "private groups."

    7. "Transparent" and fast application certification.

    Microsoft is promising a simple, clear, fast and open process for certifying Windows Phone applications and deploying them to Windows Phone Marketplace.

    8. Battery performance is still an unknown.

    Microsoft hasn't released data, and no production phones are available (one blog reported seeing a Samsung-branded handset used in one MIX10 demo).

    9. Copy and paste is not available in current builds, and developers are being told that it's not available.

    Not so long...we have enough time to develop and code application for Windows Phone 7 Series. But Windows Phone 7 series only run those application, verified by Microsoft or Windows Market Place.

    There are chances of Windows Phone being released earlier than Nov-Dec 2010.
    So hope to see them earlier.

    I think it will be available at the time of holidays because this year seems to be fully packed for Microsoft as it will release lots of his new products. like MS Office 2010, Visual Studio 2010, Windows Live Wave 4, Internet Explorer 9 and many other products are in the queue.....so, I don't think that MS will get time before holidays to launch the Windows Phone 7 series. but as we say hope for the best....we may be able to get it soon..
