Microsoft has released the Developer Tools (Beta) for Windows Phone Development. This is indeed a great news for everyone who is working on the platform. You can download the Windows Phone Developer Tools(Beta). This version of Expression Blend runs adjacent to Expression Blend 4 and only supports Windows Phone Projects.

Device panel now provides you to switch between Horizontal and Vertical Landscape modes. Also the Device Panel allows you to switch between the Default Dark theme of Windows Phone to the Light Theme.

Other included features are :

I am really excited about the new tools and will be posting my review of the same.
