Today I saw a really impressing video from the preview of
the upcoming Windows Phone 7 update coming this fall
It gives a great impression of what is coming,
The things I'm most exited about are:
- Multitasking: So I can listen to web streams
and do something else with my phone.
- Sockets: Now real messaging tools can be build
for the phone, or even multilayer games. In the video you can get a small
glimpse on the Wp7 Skype app.
- SQL CE: For me as a developer its really interesting
to get local SQL database support including LINQ.
- IE9: The new browser will have HTML5 support,
so all the cool stuff out in the web will work on my Windows Phone 7
- XNA inside of Silverlight: Use XNA to draw really complex stuff while using a smooth Silverlight interface for the rest
The video above showed only the highlights of what is coming.
