Windows Phone 7 Controls

You may have heard today the Windows Phone developer tools are final. So now you may be wondering...since Windows Phone is basically Silverlight 3, does that mean you can use ComponentOne Silverlight 3 controls in WP7 apps?

The answer is no, unfortunately not. The Windows Phone SDK is not exactly the same as Silverlight 3. So the while the C1 controls may show up in design-time the app will not compile.

The good news is we do plan to provide special "mobilized" versions of our Studio for Silverlight controls to be used for Windows Phone development. The even better news is that you can help us prioritize which controls we mobilize first. So sound off (leave a comment) and let us know what you want to see! We've also gotten a lot of feedback from the forums too, so you can expect some Beta versions pretty soon!
