Windows Marketplace will work with Windows Mobile 6.0 after all
Sure, that leaves users that are still using phones with Windows Mobile 5.0 or older operating systems out in the cold. But you didn't really expect Microsoft to support an aging operating system that was released years ago, did you?
In other news, Microsoft has confirmed that it will take a 30% cut of revenues generated from Windows Marketplace sales, and developers will have to pay a $99 annual fee for each app listed in the store, although developers will be able to list up to 5 programs free of charge if they submit them before the end of 2009.
Windows Marketplace won't be available to the public until later this year. In the meantime, you can still download and install thousands of Windows Mobile applications the old fashioned way, by hunting for them on the internet using a desktop or mobile browser.
