I’m attending the Windows Phone 7 Jump-Start event at Microsoft’s Redmond campus today and tomorrow. Nice hour-long drive, and I am glad the event is taking place not far from home.
Thus far it has been mostly a review of capabilities and features, with an interesting segue into a demo of using Expression Blend to create an effect (a swinging door). Cool! This event will take place again next week down in California, in Silicon Valley.
The Windows Phone 7 devices that will be available will be, according to Microsoft’s dictum, quite powerful and very much standardized. There will only be one screen resolution to start with, although another (smaller) one will be released later.
Gotta run, the afternoon session is starting up.
