Perspective 3d for WinPhone7 apps using Blend

I really love the Perspective 3d capabilities in Blend where you can place content and controls on either side.  You see this a lot in iPhone apps and I’m getting psyched to use this when I start building WinPhone7 apps.  So how do you do it? First here is a cool sample of it with an OOB app that reveals different layouts on either side: http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/silverlight/demos/OOB/default.html

You basically perform the task by creating a two-sided content control and performing storyboard animations on the PlaneProjection to simulate the flipping.  Here are two great links with details I followed to get the job done:
