From Google Translate--->

Great book to start programming in the new Windows Phone 7.

Clearly explained and very progressive in content and examples that will teach. And not only that they are well explained, they are very complete, and that goes from the basic components of an application to the use of Web services.

On the downside, and it is something you see much in the last books that are coming out, is that just touches XNA, just one chapter focuses on Silverligth. So if you want to make applications, this book is an excellent choice, but if you also want to enter the world of games, we should find something else.

Estupendo libro para comenzar a programar en los nuevos Windows Phone 7.

Claramente explicado y muy progresivo en los contenidos y ejemplos que va enseñando. Y ya no es solo que estén bien explicado, además son muy completos, ya que va desde los componentes básicos de una aplicación, hasta el uso de servicios web.

En el lado negativo, y es algo que se ve mucho en los últimos libros que están saliendo, es que apenas toca XNA, apenas un capítulo y se centra en Silverligth. Así que si quieres hacer aplicaciones, este libro es una excelente elección, pero si también quieres entrar en el mundo de los juegos, habría que buscar otra cosa.
