Everything you need to know from MIX '11

MIX'11 was eventful to say the least, with a large array of Windows Phone 7 announcements being made within the space of an hour on day two--then there were the sessions for the next 2 days. We were situated at the front of the action and were able to cover everything from the introduction of Internet Explorer 10 to Spotify making an appearance on WP7.

Should you have not been able to follow all the 'goings on' at the event, take a look at the list below (located after the break) featuring our coverage with everything you need to know. Please feel free to share as we think this is quite comprehensive.

  • Good news coming out of MIX. I still have a few questions though, mostly related to the user side of things (ex. Desktop Client, Windows Live Services, Office apps, etc). Any hints at MIX when Microsoft might be talking about this?
  • Is there any indication that Bluetooth access APIs will be released soon? This is completely holding my development of some apps. All APIs and sideloading of apps should be a default feature like Android. Microsoft can tag sideloaded app and run them under stricter permissions so there are less chances of malware and viruses.All promises must be delivered on time and quickly. Android is taking big bite of market every day and lack of basic important features will kick the b u t t of WP7.
  • There was no mention of BT APIs at this event. I still expect more news to come later though as we're still months away from release.
  • Microsoft needs to stop using this guy for public appearances... He is nowhere NEAR as attractive or hip as he thinks he is. That hair has got to be changed..or cut. I can't read the article because the guy creeps me out. What's his name? NO!! Don't tell me..I don't wanna know..Bring back Balmer!!
