At MIX10 there were a number of announcements and a lot of buzz around Windows Phone 7 and one of its development platforms, Silverlight. While it is undoubtedly tempting to download the CTP bits and start coding, it would be wise to take a step back and come to an understanding of the differences between developing in Silverlight for Windows Phone 7 and developing for traditional (i.e. browser hosted) Silverlight applications.In this session we’ll examine the differences and similarities between the two platforms as well as some other gotchas that come along with developing for Windows Phone 7.

In pulling materials together for the session I thought it’d be nice to have a PowerPoint presentation that had the look and feel of the Windows Phone 7 Series. After hacking around for about 15 minutes I came up with a template that I thought would work. The template consists of two layouts:
(Layout 1: title)
(Layout 2: content)
After creating the template I realized other people are probably throwing together presentations around Windows Phone 7 and they might like to use/modify this template. So I thought I’d just make it available to anyone interested.
Note: The template was created using PowerPoint 2010, and has not been tested for compatibility with PowerPoint 2007.
You can download the template here.
