My name is Stephen and currently an IT Professional doing administration and support, however I've always had a deep passion for software development. I've started mobile application development when I got my first Android phone in October 09. This blog catalogues all my progress with creating mobile apps for not only Android, but eventually iPhone, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7. Hope you enjoy.


Windows 7 Phone


I wanted to write a post about the new phone OS Microsoft is bringing to play. Windows 7 Phone, but honestly haven't done much research on it yet.

What I do know, and intrigues me a lot is that with it's SDK a developer can develop an application that can run on the phone, a windows PC and a Xbox 360...that is one cool feature that the other companies don't have the base to implement. Mac has computers but no console, Google just has it's web browser [and future netbook OS]

With a release of this system [and new phones] planned for this holiday season, it give's me plenty of time to learn it's SDK, which I plan to install once I get my new Lenovo S10 or MSI Wind and dual boot Windows 7 and OSX and the laptop will pretty much be my coding machine, I know the Atom processor does have enough horsepower to properly code for Android and iPhone, I hope Windows 7 Phone is no different.

I'm unsure of the registration fees at this time [Apple is $100, Google is $25] but the SDK is a free download as it is with the others. This is one exciting platform to get into, Mobile Development. Besides those big 3 you still have Blackberry, Nokia S60 and Palm's WebOS to consider.
