      Great now Mobile services is getting closer to build real live LOB apps ,What I would love to see in future updates are.

      1) Nested update ,insert of entities.

      2) Any possible way to write server side code in C#,VB which would be tough in near future but I thing if we have any tool to write server side code in C# and covert into server side code which is node js so that would be great.

      I wish you best of luck and looking forward to build multi device apps.

      One questions more any future plans for BlackBerry and Symbian devices.

      Hi, currently i'm developing a multimedia android application which will evetually integrate with azure. I was wondering if there are website / tutorials on how to integrate both of them. I google around and i cant find tutorials on how to upload audio/video/picture from my application to azure. I also must attempt to retrieve them from the azure.

      Do offer me any guidance if you have the knowledge to guide me through my project.

      Thank you.
