Windows Phone 7 Marketplace Analyzed with App Breakdown
Well, a bit far from Three UK’s leaked document, advertising the availability of “over 2,000” apps ready in the Marketplace by October 21, 2010, date of Windows Phone 7 handset launch, but still good in terms of applications available for a brand new platform and Microsoft is being realistic expecting 1,000 apps available in the Marketplace by the time Windows Phone 7 devices launch in the U.S. on November 8.
