Yes we finally have Express version of Visual Studio 2010 for Windows Phone

Last week as I took a nostalgic walk down the memory lane talking about the tooling features over the years targeting various Generations of Windows Mobile.

Today I am very pleased to share that we have brand new setup of (Free!) tools now available for download today. Yes this is the big announcement we made at MIX and something our team has been working very hard to deliver.


We are super excited and I am hoping you will really love the work we have done to take your Silverlight and XNA productivity to another level, by bringing together Visual Studio 2010, A new emulator, Windows Phone developer resources and XNA Game studio.

Why wait  - download right now ! Yes a 1 click install for *everything* you need to get started today !

Send me your feedback,. If you read this post now and then download the tools, you should have your first app ready before Lunch :-)

Cheers !
