UI Design and Interaction Guide for Windows Phone 7 v2.0 released

Microsoft has updated the UI Design and Interaction Guide for Windows Phone 7 to beta status. I must say that I’m happy to see that this isn’t a minor update, Lot’s of things have been added and I highly suggest you to download it if you are currently developing for Windows Phone 7. One interesting info is that unlike the current emulator and some of the builds I’ve seen on real devices, the browser will indeed have a application bar when running in landscape mode (hey that’s nothing groundbreaking…but it’s good to know that the emulator isn’t 100% how things will look like this fall). Download the pdf document here.

    Wow!!! I’m impressed! I just downloaded and I can’t stop reading it!

    It looks promising!!! Congratulations Microsoft! I’m sold! :)

    One question M., doesn’t phone ‘pictured’ on page 52 look like an HTC HD2 but with WP7 look??? If that’s HTC phone, well, congratulations again, we’ve seen it thousand times but only this time I’m seeing it as an HTC phone.

    Yeah it’s great read!
    Every slab phone kinda looks like an HD2 or iPhone hehe. They’ve actually changed the mock up lately (as seen onpage 61. the three buttons are now separated).
