Microsoft announced the Amazon Web Services (AWS) SDK for Windows Phone beta release. Built as an open source project, the SDK provides developers with a speed dial that lets them quickly connect and integrate Windows Phone applications with AWS (S3, SimpleDB, and SQS Cloud Services).

“Our approach with AWS is to provide developers with choice and flexibility to build applications the way they want and give them unlimited storage, bandwidth and computing resources, while paying only for what they use. We welcome Windows Phone developers to the AWS community and look forward to providing customers with new ways to build and deploy Windows Phone applications,” Terry Wise, Director of Business Development for Amazon Web Service says.

Developers want to create cloud-connected mobile applications, have a choice and can be able to reuse their assets and skills. Further developers familiar with AWS – they’ve been developing for Android, iOS or any other technology, this SDK will allow them to comfortably port their applications to the Windows Phone Platform.

SDK can be downloaded along with the complete source code under the Apache license. A Getting Started guide can be found on the Windows Phone Interoperability Bridges site along with other resources.
