Many UK ISVs are looking at where Windows Phone 7 fits into their existing application portfolios. Windows Phone 7 development is fun and familiar (especially if your company is already doing XAML development) but… there is plenty of new stuff to learn. Hence it is great to see that the Windows Phone 7 team at Microsoft is making available for free all 24 chapters (1000 pages) of this new book by Charles Petzold.

You can download a PDF here (38.6 MB).
