At MIX10, Microsoft released an early list of companies and developers working on apps for its upcoming Windows Phone 7 Series devices. On stage at Mix, the company showed a Netflix application that will let people use Windows Phone 7 Series devices to watch streaming content from the movie service's online library. Microsoft Game Studios will also make titles for Windows Phone 7 Series. Joe Belfiore demonstrated a 3D game on Windows Phone 7 Series that allowed the gamer to boost his Xbox Live achievements by playing on the phone. Some of the more notable names on the list of initial Windows Phone 7 Series application developers are Foursquare, Pandora, Sling Media, EA, Seesmic, PopCap, and Namco. Full list here. Preview of the Foursquare app for Windows Phone 7 Series showed a new category called "Societies," suggesting that it’ll adopt something similar to the approach used by Whrrl, a competing mobile app from Seattle-based Pelago. Whrrl uses its "societies" to help people with similar interests and in similar locations connect. Foursquare teaser is visible in accompanying screenshot from Microsoft webcast. Anand Iyer of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 team pointed it out out Twitter, adding, "Stay Tuned."
