MobileCrunch reports that Windows Phone 7 will be launched on the 11th of October. I’m still highly skeptical about what if anything Windows Phone 7 will bring to mobile music. Having said that, I was completely wrong about the potential in the blackberry tablet, so I think I might have to be more careful this time around.

I haven’t heard of any developers who are thinking about music software for WP7, but if there are I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Silverlight can do music production apps… its just a question of if any devs will bite. iPod touches are way more common than any WinPhone 7 device… and as far as I can tell there are only a small fraction of devs working on Android-based music apps (closer analog to WinPhone 7 than iOS in terms of marketshare and market-type).

    Maybe if WinPhone came out sooner, and/or maybe if it wasn't so radically different than the last Windows Mobile platform there would be a chance of more apps.

    I honestly don't think it will be a very good mobile music production platform. It may still have a market, but I doubt it will be a place for creative-types to perform on.

    Musicians who needs computers not gadgets? As fun as IOS music apps can be, there's still nothing remotely comparable to Cubase, Ableton Live or even Fruityloops.
