Microsoft stopped shipping the Mobile SDK in Visual Studio releases after the 2008 version. This wasn't a big surprise, as there were no takers for that feature and android made a big hole. But now, things have changed, Microsoft has partnered with Nokia, HTC rolling new mobiles with Windows OS. Also, Windows 8 is all set to make début on tablets.
Can all these be seen as potential reasons for Microsoft to roll-out the Mobile SDK again in future releases of Visual Studio ?
