  • No, while WP7 is elegedly based on Windows CE, it is not possible to make a WP7 image using platform builder.

    Naturally MS provide the Windows Phone OEMs with tools, documentation and support but due to the committment and sheere scale of building a Windows Phone device from both Microsoft and the OEMs side, those tools are only available to some seriously large phone manufacturers and some of their partners that Microsoft has chosen to work with (and vice versa).
