Silverlight Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 RTW Released

This looks like a week of major releases! With the release of IE 9 Beta still fresh, Microsoft recently released the Windows Phone Developer Tools RTW. The WP7 Developer Tools allow you create .NET applications for the Windows Phone 7 platform using the Silverlight. I am really excited since these Tools hit the RTM.

This release contains the following:

  • Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone
  • Windows Phone Emulator Resources
  • Silverlight 4 Tools For Visual Studio
  • XNA Game Studio 4.0
  • Microsoft Expression Blend for Windows Phone
