do-epic-shit-3 The official and the final bits of windows phone 7 developer tools are now available, go download them from here. The installer bundles everything you need to develop for windows phone 7 in a nice little package that includes,

- Visual Studio 2010 Express
- Silverlight for windows phone 7
- XNA Game Studio 4 for windows phone 7
- Expression Blend 4 for Windows Phone 7
- Windows Phone 7 emulator

You also get a phone registration and deployment tool which you can use to register and unlock a wp7 device, if you’re lucky enough to have one that is.The deployment tool works both on a physical device as well as the emulator and can be used to deploy your xap’s directly.

Another interesting bit of news today was the release of Windows Phone 7 Ads SDK, check it out here. I got really excited by this until I installed it and dug a little deeper. The documentation accompanying the install clearly says that, as of now at least, this can only be used by developers in the US,


disappointing, but hopefully it will be available for others outside of US soon. Off to installing the tools now, ciao.

Update: Forgot to mention about the Windows Phone 7 Training Kit. The samples have been updated to work with the RTM version of the tools and new tutorials have been added for pivot and panorama controls. You can download the kit from here.
