Microsoft's Windows Phone developers team today introduces "Mobile Test Drive," to share some of the work the team done with the community in preparation for Internet Explorer 9 on Windows Phone "Mango".

Mobile Test Drive is based on the same idea of Internet Explorer Test Drive, but with a mobile twist:

"It's organized essentially the same way as the original, except laid out to be easily read and used on the mobile form factor. We've ported over some of the more popular samples from the full version of the IE Test Drive and have developed a few of our own mobile-specific ones too, including the demos that Joe Belfiore showed at MIX 11 earlier this year. It's important to note that even though we use the same core rendering engines on both the desktop and mobile versions of IE and adhere to the concept of "same markup" when we produce our samples, we felt that it was worth creating a mobile test drive site to illustrate how we approach some of the key issues that developers face when creating mobile-optimized content: screen sizes, device capabilities, etc," stated Windows phone developers team.

"Over the coming months leading up to the release of "Mango" and beyond, we'll be adding new samples to the Mobile Test Drive for you to try out, and will announce them here on the blog when we do" the team added.

To kick off, the team added following first 15 samples on the Mobile Test Drive:

  • Audio Player (from MIX11)
  • Geolocation
  • Border Radius
  • DOM Local Storage
  • Scalable Vector Graphics
  • CSS3 Media Queries
  • DOMContentLoaded
  • FishIE Tank
  • Speed Reading (from MIX11)
  • Animated Text
  • HamsterDance Revolution
  • Business Charts
  • IE Logo
  • Video Panorama
  • Browser Control Theming
