Recently , Microsoft had announced the release of the Windows Phone Developer Tools CTP .

The development platform for developing the Windows Phone applications are based on Silverlight . The GUI looks good and clean too.

The runtimes that are supported are Silverlight, XNA Framework and .NET Compact Framework .

The developers can use the following frameworks for development

Silverlight – for developing XAML based Applications

XNA – for developing games.

The following tools can be used to develop and test the Windows phone applications . To test on the real device , the developers have to wait for some time .

  • Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone CTP
  • Windows Phone Emulator CTP
  • Silverlight for Windows Phone CTP
  • XNA 4.0 Game Studio CTP
  • Expression Blend 4

The article in the MSDN states that there is already Add-in to integrate it to the existing visual studio version .

Visit Microsoft’s Download Center to download the Windows Phone Developer Tools and try the Windows Phone Developer Tools (CTP).

Looks like the Windows Phone 7 development tools for Visual Studio will be free to download .

I have got it installed and fully geared up to develop few Windows Phone Apps this time 🙂
