ARM, the architecture, is endianess agnostic.
But AFAIT all major OS run over little-endian processors, including all Windows flavors.

I've never run across an ARM setup that actually runs in big endian (nor do I want to), so I'm pretty sure its little endian. I'd be more than willing to test an app on my phone since Windows Phone is crap anyway, so you couldn't damage it any worse than it is now :-)
