In addition to the final release of the Windows Phone 7 Developer Tools, Microsoft has provided (opens in new tab) an SDK (Software Development Kit) to enable developers to create ad-supported applications. The SDK allows you to create text or banner ads, and uses Microsoft’s Mobile Ad Exchange to monetize your applications. The Ad Exchange is “the first bidded ad exchange for mobile.” Additionally, the SDK is integrated with Micrsoft pubCenter, which gives you reporting on how different ads are performing within your applications.
Nice to see Microsoft integrating and emphasizing all of their established services, which should be a strength of the Windows Phone 7 platform.
