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.
