Question; first thanks for the notice that the x10 WiFi unit is here, I ordered mine.  Will there we a windows phone app available? If not, I will get an Android phone to work with this long awaited device.

The app for your iPhone is already at the app store (free dl). I am using it now. You can download it today, but the app is useless until you receive the WM100.

Next question; I have one computer at home with win XP; will the new wifi device work on XP? Thanks all

No computer needed... unless you count your phone. You'll setup your devices, timers, and scenes all through the app on your phone. The WM100 plugs into an outlet and syncs with your phone... but operates via wifi... so you'll have control from anywhere.

Setup is super easy! But for timers and scenes I needed to review the directions. For the wifi setup... there is a barcode/QR code on the WM100 and you just scan it with your phone and press the sync button till it blinks. Follow the simple instructions you can't miss.

WiFi App is only in Android and iOS versions. There has been some discussion about a Windows version (mainly to be able to input devices via a desktop or laptop), but if it happens, I don't think it will be soon. $0.02

Mic_ ,
You'll need an iOS device (something with a camera and wifi) or an Android device(again something with a camera and wifi)
The camera is only needed to scan the QR code for setup wifi is needed for communication.
Currently they are the only Phones which have an app.
As dave w pointed out there is currently no way to connect via a PC.
If/when the Protocol is released this may happen from a thirdparty.
