Microsoft Windows Phone SDK review

Article comments

Programmers with experience developing for Microsoft's platforms should be overjoyed by this SDK, especially those who are well-versed in XAML, C#, Visual Basic, or C++. Finally there's a good path to using that knowledge to create an app running on a thin tablet or a mobile phone.

The SDK, though, is more than just an opportunity to catch up with the iPhone or the Android world. Some parts of it offer new features such as lenses and VoIP apps that will create a unified world that's simpler and more harmonious for the user. This alone promises that Windows Phone phones will have some advantages - if Microsoft can attract enough programmers and phone owners to nurture an ecosystem.
