Developers for Windows Phone 7 have something big to look forward to next month when Microsoft plans to deliver test hardware. This will be a major step towards the holiday release of Windows Phone 7, as it allows developers to test their apps on actual hardware. These test units shouldn’t too exciting to non-devs, as they will most likely be non-descript hardware similar to what we saw at the launch of Windows Phone 7. It will be interesting to see new apps and get a real feel for how these will perform on actual hardware. Since all Windows Phone 7 devices need to meet the required technical specs, app performance should be on par or better than what trickles in next month. Any devs receive a test unit, be sure to ping us with videos of your apps in action.
