Looking good, hope the developer tools catch up and make HTML5 as easy to dev for as Silverlight.
Have been using the phone for a few hours - it's a sweet upgrade, new features really come alive on a device (HD7).
You can update any dev unlocked device -- but they are limiting support to one device, should something go wrong, got my invitation, will download overnight and flash in the morning ...
... OK, so I got up in the middle of the night and flashed the phone .. need to get more sleep ...
The Windows Phone Developer team is pleased to announce the immediate
availability of Windows Phone OS 7.1 codenamed Mango for registered Windows
If you're registered for Windows Phone Marketplace, you'll receive an
invitation from Microsoft Connect that will provide access to a firmware update
for your retail Windows Phone device. Visit our membership page to
become a registered Windows Phone developer.
Here are some details about this program:
- You must have an active, validated App Hub account.
- You may update only one phone per developer.
Cool (although I havn't received an email as yet - anyone else?)
Breaking News - Steve Jobs just read your post and says he is going to give everyone in this picture an iPhone ...
So Adobe is working on a porting tool from Flash->HTML5.
Hopefully MS will do the same for Silverlight (just in case I ever want to deploy something in HTML5)
