Free Visual Studio Express to support Windows Phone 7 series?

vs10wp7

Microsoft has over the years come under much criticism for disabling support for Windows Mobile in their free Visual Studio Express application, which allows non-commercial development on the desktop and web.

It seems Windows Phone 7 will reverse this regrettable move, if this Visual Studio Express page is anything to go.  As can be seen above, the page claims “free tools that empower you to quickly get started learning and building Web, Windows, Phone and Database applications”.

Of course the rest of the page makes no mention of that capability, but we have heard rumours that his will be one of the announcements Microsoft will be making at MIX10.

Thanks Ap0llo for the tip.
