Windows Phone is an amazing platform to use and to design applications for. We are very proud to make a preview version of authoring for Windows Phone available with Expression Blend 4. Downloads will be available around 10:45am today at http://developer.windowsphone.com.
For those of you who have already been using Blend for designing applications for Silverlight or WPF, creating applications for Windows Phone will be a very familiar experience: Basically, authoring is almost entirely identical with the design experience for Silverlight. All your existing skills are still valid, and you can be immediately productive for the new Windows Phone platform.
