All you need to know about Push Notifications for Windows Phone 7

Want to know all the details about Windows Phone 7's 'Push Notification' system? Since 3rd party multitasking is officially a no-no on our new OS, Push Notifications (PNs) will play quite a role in how our after-market software interacts with the internet.

Luckily Microsoft's own Developer Blog has detailed everything from defining what is a PN (and perhaps more importantly why they went with them), how they work and how to use them on a WP7 device.

The articles are written for the developer and even consumers who will be able to make sense of material, so don't be afraid if you have 30 minutes to kill to jump right in. (Okay, the last two parts get very technical) Quite a few interesting nuggets of info await!
