Windows Mobile Marketplace Ready for Launch

There is a good news for the new owners of Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets. Microsoft's App Store is all set to roll out the new 6.5 OS come this October 6th. But the older Windows Mobile 6.0 and 6.1 versions, won't get a chance to purchase or download these third party applications.

Windows Marketplace will be released in a couple of phases, with the first phase beginning this Tuesday, while the second phase will see an App Store release for Windows 6.0 and 6.1 owners that will happen sometime before 2009 is over.

Microsoft official Todd Brix went on to mention even more stuff about the future of Marketplace and said, “In addition, this second phase will bring the PC based catalog and shopping experience, user generated app reviews, advanced key-based anti-piracy protection and other enhancements that expand your business opportunity and make it easier for a larger number of customers to find and buy your application.”
