Terry Wise, Director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services says about the Microsoft Release on AWS SDK for Windows Phone 7
“Our approach with AWS is to provide developers with choice and flexibility to build applications the way they want and give them unlimited storage, bandwidth and computing resources, while paying only for what they use. We welcome Windows Phone developers to the AWS community and look forward to providing customers with new ways to build and deploy Windows Phone applications”.
Jean Paoli, General Manager of Interoperability Strategy at Microsoft says about the Microsoft Release on AWS SDK for Windows Phone 7
