Charles says this on his blog:

“’Multitasking on Windows Phone 7’: That's the (somewhat provocative) title of a presentation I'll be delivering at the NYC .NET Developers Group on October 21, 2010…. This is the only public presentation on Windows Phone 7 currently on my schedule, and I plan to make the most of it.”
