  1. Microsoft is no stranger to having companions galore within the telephone enterprise, however its lineup of producers for the upcoming, surprisingly promising Home windows Phone 7 launch is not any less impressive. After loads of rumoring, Microsoft has confirmed that Dell and HTC will likely be making Windows Phone 7 telephones, in addition to ASUS, LG, and Samsung who had already been confirmed. All of those corporations should have their stamp on hardware by the top of the year, with the launch of the OS still vaguely slated for the “holidays” We have now no doubt that all 5 manufacturers can build some compelling, horny hardware, however we’re notably enthused to see Dell really stepping into the sport after the impressive Streak and that drool worthy leak a little while back. learn more at http://www.wp7forum.com followers group.

    1. Yeah now we have some big players who have come forward for mobile development for Windows Phone 7… and Dell’s intro was a surprise entry to the group… BTW #1 source of Windows Phone 7 looks awesome.. keep us updated Nicky.. nice work done 🙂

  2. I have professional version of VS 2010, and I do not want to download VS 2010 express version. Is there a way for me to develop win 7 mobile application without using VS 2010 express? Maybe a direct link to the tools will do, since I only have limited internet connection.
