About Telerik RadControls for Windows Phone 7
RadControls for Windows Phone are built from the ground up for the Windows Phone 7 Operating System to deliver new user experience based on content and motion. The suite offers controls and capabilities that are currently not available in the UI Toolbox for Windows Phone 7 and not even in the OS. Combining Telerik’s expertise in Silverlight development and the capabilities of the Windows Phone platform, RadControls for Windows Phone are super light and blazing-fast controls for building mobile applications.
With the first version of the RadControls for Windows Phone in general, Telerik is helping complete the Silverlight development toolbox for Phone developers. Out-of-the-box, the Microsoft Silverlight toolbox for Phone lacks many of the native Windows Phone 7 UI elements phone in the OS, such as the picker box and window. Telerik completes the development toolbox by providing many of the “missing” OS UI controls to Silverlight application developers, including a rich animation framework optimized for performance and battery life. For a complete comparison of the Telerik tools for Phone to the Microsoft toolkit, check-out the online comparison chart.
