Joining me this week is Garry Whitaker to talk about the developer story behind the new Windows 7 Phones.

DLNA apps, remotes and Media Center guide apps would be great on Windows Phones so Garry and I talk through the the tools and platforms and speculate on some of the apps we will see. Garry also gives us an update on networked TV tuners with Windows Media Center
