Mike Ormond is happy to announce that the Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta release is now here and is available for download.

The release notes are available here. A couple of things to point out:

  • Expression Blend for Windows Phone is now part of the install
  • It's now possible to unlock a device (if you're fortunate enough to have one) and to deploy XAP files directly to it
  • There are a number of breaking changes to the API but it's getting close to baked. You can see a full rundown here

Here are some more post about this release:

  • Windows Phone CTP vs Windows Phone Beta
  • Windows Phone 7 Tools Beta Available for Download by Alex Golesh
  • Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta Released by the Expression Blend Team
