PointAbout has been a pretty big developer in the iPhone/iPad crowd and even a bit of Android, so it's nice to see them coding some things for Windows Phone 7.

The first app was commissioned by the Huffington Post, the popular left-leaning news and gossip site and will be obviously a free download in the Marketplace. As you can see from above, it's already listed for download, meaning it will be one of the thousand or so available come November.

In a press release, Project Manager Kevin Lenane had this to say:

"The Windows Phone 7 Huffington Post application displays award winning Huffington Post content in a new and innovative way that is wholly unique to the Windows Phone 7 panoramic layout utilizing a pivot control. Using the new Windows Phone 7 Metro UI standards, the application creates an easy-to-digest "foldable" news application that is both visually striking and easy to use. The application supports integrated layers of content through Facebook, Email, and messaging channels."
