Did you know that your current Android or iPhone apps can be ported to Windows Phone 7? Now, there’s no “easy” button that will automagically convert the apps for you. However, in a post on June 9th, 2011, the Windows Phone team explained how Android apps can be converted. Microsoft has provided an easy package for Android developers. The package includes:
- Android to Windows Phone API mapping tool
- Windows Phone 7 Guide for Android Application Developers white paper, 90+ pages organized in 7 chapters
In April, the team released an initial post explaining how iPhone apps can be ported to WP7. This package includes:
- iPhone to Windows Phone API mapping tool
- Windows Phone 7 Guide for iOS and iPhone Application Developers white paper, 90+ pages organized in 7 chapters

If you plan on converting an Android or iPhone app, be sure to respond to this and let me know how things are going.
