"I've recorded a little video showing using Visual Studio 2010 and the actual device to debug directly on the device. Yes it works...and yes its fast. I am really happy with the experience. Debugging with the emulator is fast too, but there are times when you want to make sure it works on the device and that the performance is what you expect on the device."
Shawn Wildermuth, a Microsoft MVP (C#), has put up a great three part series showcasing the development process on Windows Phone 7. In the first part of the series, he looks at the phone hardware that he received from Microsoft (the LG that will never actually make it to market). In the second part of the series, he demonstrates how easy it is to debug a program while it runs in the device (as opposed to the emulator). Finally, he has created a longer 20-minute demonstration on building your first application (a simple number generator) using Visual Studio and Expression Blend. Shawn has also provided source code that you can modify yourself. Hit the link for the posts and links to the source code.
