What is the best phone to develop for ? There are so many PC apps that it seems pointless to develop a PC app but mobile app,there is many things possible. I personally am not a Apple fan so iPhone is out of my plans, I do have a liking for Windows Mobile and Android despite not owning a smart phone. How do you tap into the touch screen aspect as well as the keyboard aspect of these phones to develop for ? Being a creative guy, I have an idea for a creative app

Well, both platforms have an SDK that you use to develop for. I do android development. It is done in java using eclipse, where Windows Phone 7 is done ins C# / XAML using Visual Studio. So I would suggest looking into each platform and make your decision based on that. Do you have any other programming background?

If you want to dip your feet into an Android project, take a look at my article on it:
As for the "best" phone, I guess you'll want to research which are the best-selling phones on the market, especially in your target group, if possible.
