Windows Phone 7 – my personal statusupdate

The meeting started out great with the presenter being all smiles, and with a lot of praise for the phone and the experience he has had playing with it and with the developer tools. He was also happy to show a little app he had written and talked about the nice experience of working with the developer tools and MVVM light. In spite of the presenter being happy about the product, quite a bit of the talk ended up revolving around limitations arund the software that you get out of the box, as well as limitations for the developer.
