Windows Azure SQL Database Marketplace
Today at CES in Las Vegas, Flickr and Microsoft previewed the first Flickr
applications built specifically for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 Slates. Supported by a
Windows Azure back end, these
applications will provide a sleek user interface and unique inter-connectivity
between devices. With these applications, Flickr - one of the best online photo
sharing communities in the world - is making it even easier for users to
organize and share their photos anytime, anywhere.
The Flickr Applications for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 will feature
embedded connected-device synchronization for sharing content between the two device
types - built by leveraging RSS feeds as well as the Windows Azure platform. The state of the application will be stored in the cloud, facilitating
a seamless consumer experience across Windows Phone 7 and Slate devices.
Regardless of the device the
consumer is using to access Flickr content, the consumer will see the same
context, the same photo and same state of the application.
Other benefits of building on Windows Azure
applications are another example of how cloud technology and Windows Azure are
enhancing mobile consumer experiences. The Flickr apps will be available for
download January 31, 2011. Click here to learn more.
