A couple of weeks ago Microsoft announced the formation of Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. which will contribute to open source projects, standards and interoperability. For Windows Phone 7 developers, where the mobile OS market is highly fragmented, any efforts to push standards and interoperability are a very good thing. The first project backed by the Open Tech interop team was Apache Cordova (PhoneGap) allowing you to run HTML5 applications on your WP7, as covered in one of my previous blog posts.
