Microsoft plan to bring Android developers to Windows Phone

The company has released a Windows Phone API mapping tool for Android developers to help them find their way around the Windows Phone platform.

It has also published a white paper, "Windows Phone 7 Guide for Android Application Developers," describing the differences between the two platforms, including the way they handle inactive applications and multitasking.

For Windows Phone to become a success, Microsoft and partners like Nokia have to convince developers to add the operating system to the list of platforms they target.
