Synopsis:

Consumers today expect their phone to be a multi-use machine with the capabilities of a phone, a GPS, a gaming device, and an Internet tablet. For some consumers, their phone is now their primary connection to the Internet, replacing the desktop/laptop computer for the first time. For developers, the challenge is to find the best way to create the experiences that the user needs. Windows Phone 7.5 provides that platform, and Silverlight is the engine to power those experiences. This book is not an exhaustive reference on the topic but a quick and easy-to-digest way for developers to jump into Windows Phone 7.5 programming with Silverlight guru Shawn Wildermuth.
