In this post, Cheryl Simmons explains how to load a static xml file into your WP7 application.

Source: Silverlight SDK

In my application, I have a fair amount of static data that lends itself to an XML file very well…it’s not enough data for a database solution, but too much to hard-code into the app. My goal was to store the info in an xml file and load it into an LINQ XElement. Then I could easily use LINQ queries to get the data I needed into my application. Unfortunately, it took a bit of messing around to figure out how to load this data from the file. Following are the steps I took.
