The finalised version of the Windows Phone 7 developer tools have been made available by Microsoft for download. Alongside this Microsoft have made announcements about some initial applications that have been developed including Twitter, Travelocity and NetFlix amongst others.

One initial download will initiate installation of all relevant tools - Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone, the Windows Phone Emulator, Expression Blend 4 for Windows Phone, and XNA Game Studio 4.0. The installer only download only what your PC needs- therefore skipping Visual Studio 2010 and Expression Blend 4 download if you already have these installed.
