Mary-Jo Foley, over at ZDNet, compiled a list of various questions regarding Windows Phone 7 that has been answered thus far during her time at the Microsoft Mix 10 conference. One big question that always pops up when it comes to smart phones is the multitasking ability. Microsoft's own "experiences" will allow for multitasking, but third party applications won't be afforded the same flexibility, at least not at the onset. Microsoft will make more multitasking support available for all applications over time, when things like battery life and network utilization are improved. In the meantime, third party apps will still be able to push notifications. Check out the article for other questions and answers, such as C# being the only current development language and the extent of enterprise support.
