With Windows Phone 7 set to be available soon, now is the perfect time to become acquainted with all it has to offer. A different kind of phone, designed for life in motion, Windows Phone 7 provides a robust platform for building apps that enable your customers to talk, share, and socialize the way they want, through integration with Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Office. You can also embed ads to make your apps more profitable, by using the Microsoft Advertising Software Developer Kit (SDK) for Windows Phone. And drive new revenue by capitalizing on the growing Smartphone market, which IDC research indicates is poised to increase from US$1.1 billion this year to more than US$3.1 billion in 2014.
