Programming Windows Phone 7: Microsoft Silverlight Edition and Programming Windows Phone 7: Microsoft XNA Framework Edition takes the Silverlight and XNA parts of Charles Petzold’s free 1,000-plus page ebook Programming Windows Phone 7 and puts it them into two separate paper books (a good idea; 1,000 page books are pricey, hard to bind and hard to lug around). If you’d rather have Petzold’s wisdom in graspable paper form than as an ebook, these are the books for you.
