Many devs have been waiting for a toolkit so they can consume OData from [Metro] “Windows Store” apps they are building. The Release Candidate of these tools is now on the download center:
WCF Data Services Tools for Windows Store Apps RC:
“The WCF Data Services Tools for Windows Store Apps installer extends the Add Service Reference experience with client-side OData support for Windows Store Apps in Visual Studio 2012.”
Mark Stafford from the OData team has written two blog posts that walk you through using the tooling and creating a WinRT (aka Windows Store) app
OData 101: Building our first OData-based Windows Store app (Part 1)
OData 101: Building our first OData-based Windows Store app (Part 2)

What is Microsoft’s position for line of business applications in WinRT apps ?
Nice find! I’m just creating my first Windows Store app with WCF support and the OData support could become handy as I’m also planning on using that data source elsewhere.
