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 .

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).
