This week we spoke to Dev Plat Program Manager Mike Battista about how we extended the great Windows Phone experience to run on more affordable hardware, and what it means for software developers.
And what does it mean? Tremendous new opportunities!
Given these changes, we felt you would like more information about exactly what we did to accomplish this, and what YOU can do in order maximize the impact of your applications on these new devices.
