Download: Windows Phone Developer Tools Final Release!

Couple of weeks ago, the Windows Phone 7 operating system was Released to Manufacturers by Microsoft. On the 16th of September 2010,  Microsoft announced the Final Version of the Windows Phone Developer Tools.

Developers can now complete their applications and games for the Windows Phone 7 platform. The release is available for download over the web. Currently the release is only in English Language. The other languages will soon be available in upcoming weeks which includes French, German, Spanish and Italian.

According to Brandon Watson,Director for Windows Phone 7;

The final release of the Windows Phone Developer Tools is the culmination of hard work on the part of many talented people. We couldn’t, however, have done it without the help of the community. The feedback we received since our initial release in March has enabled us to make some changes, resulting in a better finished product. Everything you need to begin developing apps is included in a single download: Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone, the Windows Phone Emulator, Expression Blend 4 for Windows Phone, and XNA Game Studio 4.0. The installer is smart enough to download only what you need, and the tools will work with your existing Visual Studio 2010 and Expression Blend 4 installations

The submission of applications will start in first few weeks of October 2010. So all those who want to submit their applications to the Windows Phone Marketplace should download this tool and complete their apps and games before submitting it over the marketplace, which is mandatory to get the application Certified.

You can track the status of your certification of apps over the WP7 Developer Portal.
