Will Epocrates support Windows Phone 7 this year?

As we enter the New Year, one of my first questions is: Will Epocrates support Windows Phone 7 this year? Currently, Epocrates is available for smartphones running Windows Phone 6.5. They have not announced any formal plans to support Windows Phone 7.

Given that Windows Phone 7 is an entirely new operating system, apps developed for older Windows Mobile devices will need to be completely recreated to run on Windows Phone 7. I suppose we saw a similar example with the original Palm OS and the brand new Palm webOS that launched with the Palm Pre.

Will Windows Phone 7 gain enough momentum in the health care market to prompt Epocrates to create a native app for this operating system? Let's wait and see.
