Microsoft Opens Windows Mobile Marketplace to Developers

2_1

In an effort to compete with Apple’s App Store, Microsoft has opened its Windows Mobile marketplace to developers. The company is now accepting developer submissions from 29 countries.

The company is running a developer “challenge” where developers will get prizes for having popular or valuable apps.

Windows Mobile applications are developed using Microsoft’s Visual Studio. It costs $99 to become a certified developer. Microsoft is running a promotion until the end of the year where developers get five application submissions at no charge with their initial free registration.

The Windows Mobile Marketplace will open for consumers this fall. Marketplace will come pre-installed on all Windows Mobile 6.5+ devices.

    Looks like Microsoft is all ready to take on Apple. It’s good to see that, I was getting sick of the Apple advertising campaigns.

  2. Amit Chowdhry says:

    I agree Cody. I believe that Microsoft’s Mobile Store has lots of raw potential too. I believe over 130 million people use Microsoft Mobile phones.
