Session 3: "Integrating with the device capabilities (location, camera, contacts, phone)" with Andy Wigley

"Windows Phone 7 includes facilities to access built-in services and integrated hardware. In this session, you will learn how to use the Location Service to retrieve your current location making use of Cell Tower Lookup, WiFi location, and GPS. We’ll also show how you can map your position using Bing Maps. We also take a look at “Pickers and Choosers”, how your application can use the built in phone behaviours to place calls, take pictures and select contacts."
