PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Early takes on the Technical Preview of Windows Phone 7 are more thumbs up than screw up. But is it too late to sway users?

The killer with C# & silverlight is that the code you write is proprietary microsoft-only code - if your product doesn't "make it", you have intellectual property of zero value at your hands.


There's an investment risk with any platform.

Anyways if you use XNA you can also target Windows and the 360. There is also MonoTouch and MonoDroid is in the works.

Android's Java is actually incompatible with standard Java so I'm really not seeing a disadvantage for mobile .net developers.
