Microsoft today announced that its new Windows Phone 7 platform will include the company's Silverlight and XNA technologies for developers. Silverlight is a runtime designed to make it easier for developers to create rich, attractive interfaces that are intelligently separated from lower-level logic code. On the desktop, Silverlight competes with Adobe Flash. XNA provides an alternative to Silverlight that is more tailored for creating 3D and 2D games. Developers will use Microsoft's C# programming language to write apps for Windows Phone 7. The new platform is not backward-compatible with Windows Mobile 6.x apps; developers will need to re-write their apps, although they may be able to re-use some behind-the-scenes (non-interface) C# code written using .NET CF for Windows Mobile 6.x.
