Windows Phone 7 and NTLM authentication

Well, it’s been confirmed: The current release of the WP7 API does NOT support NTLM authentication for web services. Perhaps at a later point before launch, but currently its a no go.

I was going to port my SharePoint Silverlight library to WP7 but it’ll have to be put on hold now as I can’t authenticate to SharePoint’s web services properly.

Still, there’s more fun to be had with WP7 even without this:)
