Preview Of Google Sky On Windows Phone 7

First of all, this is not an upcoming application for Windows Phone 7. This is an experiment done by a Windows Phone 7 Silverlight Developer Colin Eberhardt using Bing Maps control that accepts custom tile-sources. You can also  render Google Maps data via a Bing maps chart control. So he tried this option with Google Sky tiles which  turned out to be cool. He can’t make it an application since usage of Google Maps tiles outside of Google’s service is a violation of its terms and conditions. He have made the application open source and its available for download. Can any WP7 developer try the same using Microsoft’s Worldwide Telescope? Recently we posted on a similar app called Star’s 3D Astronomy  for Windows Phone 7.
