        If you can pinpoint specific samples that are not there - then these can be specifically targetted. Some of the problem is that the VB translations are handled by a separate team that handles translations for lots of different technologies rather than just WP7. But the Compilers team that handles both C# / VB hears you and is working actively to translate more samples on newer technologies.

        Absolutely, yes.
        Very important, not to bet on only one horse.

        Thankfully I see more and more VB samples.

        I second this. It seems like all of the WP7 phone samples are in c#. I can understand/re-write most of it, but its a pain. Furthermore, all of the the WP7 dev books are in C#...its getting kind of ridiculous. Just my two cents...

        Globalized Application for Windows Phone sample in VB - No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
        I am about to start using VB to develop Apps for Mango for Chinese Market, given the about statement. I wonder will VB support in this Globalised /Localised Applications development upon final relase?

        Now that VB is a supported language in XNA, the code snippets in the XNA 4 documentation should be updated to include VB snippets in addition the C# snippets.
