Windows Phone developer tools now available for download

The new developer tools Microsoft showed off this morning at MIX10 are now available for download. With them you get the Silverlight 4.0 SDK, Windows Phone Emulator, XNA 3.0 Game Studio and Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone. Pardon us now while we spend the afternoon pretending we know how to code. [Microsoft]

Rats. Apparently it won't install on a Windows XP system.

Says that VS2010 requires Vista or Windows 7.

says:

werent they going to give minimum phone specs for running WP7s???? i kinda wanted to know how much muscle these phones were going to be having

says:

They probably will at one of the later WP7s dev sessions today or tomorrow. This was just the start of MiX you know. Way more detailed info should be coming in all day.

says:

Fup - many of those specs have been released weeks ago. Try doing a Google search.

says:

Well done Microsoft. I've always said MS needs to make their developer tools free for WM to allow the community to tinker and grow the platform.

Will have to download VS2010 Express and the emulator for WinPho to play around!

If they announce developer competitions, prizes and development money (aka Android and iPhone), developers will flock to WP7.

says:

How much competition will Windows 7 Series cell phone be for iPhone? It was a trending topic all day on Twitter. I covered it here on Big Apple Channel dot com

says:

I starting playing with the dev tools. Looks like MS is not supporting SQL databases in applications. From first glance it looks like they want you to store the data in an azure data warehouse at microsoft. What happens when you lose signal, is your app useless?

says:

Based on what I saw going across Twitter I think it will give iPhone a run because it is doing things that Windows Mobile has not come close to doing.

says:

For those that aren't familiar with Silverlight development (WP7 uses a super set of SL3.0) The learning curve is pretty steep particularly if you have done other development.

I promise you once you get past the learning curve you will see the clear advantage and what rapid application development really is.
