Windows® Phone 7.5 Unleashed is the first comprehensive, start-to-finish developer's guide to Microsoft's brand-new Windows Phone 7.5 ("Mango"). 

Written by Microsoft MVP and leading WPF/Silverlight innovator Daniel Vaughan, this full-color guide covers everything Microsoft developers need to rapidly build highly competitive Windows Phone 7.5 mobile apps.

Vaughan teaches through complete sample apps that illuminate each key concept with fully explained code and real-world context.

Throughout, he shares expert insights available in no other book, drawing on his exceptional access to the Windows Phone development team through the elite Microsoft Silverlight and WPF Insiders group.

Along the way, he presents exceptionally practical and thorough coverage of many powerful new Windows Phone 7.5 platform enhancements--including full chapters on sensors, the camera, XNA graphics, local databases, scheduled actions, and background file transfers.
