Windows Finally, we're getting to the meat of the matter. Windows Phone 7 Series really made major headlines when it was announced a few weeks ago, but despite the big splash, little to nothing was revealed about the developer environment. Similarly, it was unclear how third party applications would integrate with the operating system. At MIX10 today, Microsoft revealed all. Update: A lot more information, including photos and videos, at Engadget.

No Multitasking

I'll answer the multitasking question since I'm at MIX:

No there is no multitasking for 3rd party apps. They're taking the iPhone approach to this one, really played up the importance of battery life.

HOWEVER there is a service where a 3rd party app can provide background music even when it's not running (i.e. Pandora or Last.fm in the background will be possible).
