Developing for the Windows Phone 7 - Part 2: Debugging on the Phone

I’ve had my phone a couple of days now and been playing with the development experience on the device.  As some of you remember, I’ve been creating a new Moon Phase application for the phone (called “Moon Phaser”).  I’ll be releasing the source and you’ll be able to install it on your phone (for free) once the Marketplace launches.

I’ve recorded a little video showing using Visual Studio 2010 and the actual device to debug directly on the device. Yes it works…and yes its fast. I am really happy with the experience. Debugging with the emulator is fast too, but there are times when you want to make sure it works on the device and that the performance is what you expect on the device.  Watch the video here:

Let me know what you think!
