Highlights From The MIX10 Keynote!
Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone Developer" @ 10:00 AM
MIX10 is on now in Las Vegas and while I'm not there personally (unfortunately I'm in dreary Manhattan this morning) I do have some great tidbits from Scott Guthrie & Joe Belfiore. Here's the lowdown:
- The Mobile device application story is this: Silverlight for Internet-based applications, and XNA for gaming.
- Free developer tools: Expression Blend, and Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone.
- Windows Phone Marketplace is getting one-time credit card transactions, mobile-operator based billing, and advertising-funded applications!
- Silverlight 4 Release Candidate and Expression Blend beta 4 are on their way!
And if that's not enough, you can keep up on all of the action at MIX here!
