After watching the Mobile World Congress press conference kicked off by Steve Ballmer this afternoon in Barcelona, I’m sure you haven’t missed the news: Windows Phone 7 Series has been announced!
While Joe Belfiore showed us a peek at the new features and interface, you will still be left at a loss for developer related information. The good news: make it to MIX10 in Las Vegas and you will heard first-hand. Check out this post on the MIX10 site with updated information: “snippet: All MIX10 attendees will receive access to the Windows Phone 7 Series development tools… ”.
What if you can’t make it to Las Vegas? If you live in Belgium I encourage you to register very quickly for the “Las Vegas MIX’ing at Microsoft Belgium” free event. This includes the keynote live stream on a big screen and a fun activity as well, in the evening of March 15th (Belgian time).
