1. Introduction - Deployment of WP7 Application
Windows Phone application can be deployed on the Windows Phone Emulator or on the Physical Device. A developer can test his application on the Windows Phone Emulator supplied along with Windows SDK 7.1 or He/She can directly test his application on the Windows Phone.
Before he/she can deploy an application to a Windows Phone, he/she must first register the phone, which requires an active developer account on App Hub. Each developer account enables the registration of three devices for application development. For more information about how to create a developer account, see Dev Centre developer account - Reference. After creating a developer account and their phone is registered, they can install, run, and debug unsigned applications on the phone.
To deploy an application to a physical Windows Phone device for development and testing work, there are some steps they must take first.
