image This week you have probably seen a lot of the Windows Phone 7 Series excitement coming out of MIX10 and you may have heard it earlier from several other places as well; however, the excitement is there and continues to grow broader and louder each day.  Why?  Well, Windows Phone 7 Series holds a promise to be an amazing mobile phone with new innovative user interface and functionality, as well as a great development platform on which you can quickly and easily build games and applications! 

With all of the new devices coming out and the huge new software platform available for rich applications, demand for Windows Phone will be high, and developers who want to quickly adopt the Windows Phone platform to capitalize on this untapped mobile marketplace may be asking, “Are there any developer resources available right now for me for this?”  I am very happy to post here about the availability of the Windows Phone 7 Series Developer Training Kit, which is available for you to download today!

This training kit is geared for beginners who want to get started with developing applications for the latest Windows Phone operating system. Even if you don’t know Silverlight or XNA Framework, you’ll find this Training Kit useful.
