Windows Phone and Bing Maps

WindowsPhone_0Last week at Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona, Spain we watched Steve Ballmer and Joel Belfiori announce Windows Phone 7 Series. It was standing room only and the 50+ people in the overflow room were applauding and cheering at the 50 inch plasma as the demos went off perfectly. As any good evangelist would do, I afterwards went in and interviewed one of the Program Managers on the Windows Phone team. Ian Todd was demoing at the Windows Phone booth all day, but took some time “back stage” to give me the full one on one context where Windows Phone and Bing Maps come together. Check out my video for the full details of Bing Maps on Windows Phone. I have one of these fancy Kodak Zi8 cameras which apparently won’t focus on the device screen very well, but you’ll get the gist.

Also, make sure you’re at MIX 2010 in Las Vegas next month for Windows Phone developer announcements. I’ll be there, so we can chat Bing Maps.
