Developer devices are also on everyone’s lips. During the Windows Phone
session yesterday, Terry Myerson (he runs engineering for Windows Phone 7)
stated that we will start putting phones into select developers’ hands next
month. That’s exciting stuff. Obviously we’re starting with the
developers who have invested in the Silverlight and .NET platforms, registered
at Windows Phone Marketplace and have begun building apps with the Windows Phones Developer
Tools. Specifics of the programs are TBD, but we are going to want to
get phones into large ISV hands, small team hands…you name it. We’re
definitely not going to carpet bomb phones; we want to get maximum leverage for
our phone distribution to developers.
