Microsoft shows WP7 dev features at MIX10
Microsoft at its MIX10 developer event detailed some of how app development and sales will work for Windows Phone 7.

WP7 will also mirror iPhone development by using background push notification for those not allowed to multitask and include a general location service that any app can use.
