Microsoft demonstrates Market Place on Windows Phone 7

14 Jul

Market Place or Microsoft’s application store for Windows Phone 7 (WP7) was one of the key features that was not talked about during the announcement of the new OS in Barcelona earlier this year. I attended the packed press conference (had to wait in a queue for over an hour to barely get myself a seat on the last row) and there were murmurings whether WP7 would even have an application store or not. We all knew it would but strangely it did not figure in any of the demos.



Anyhow, last month Microsoft posted a video (wonder how I missed it) of how Market Place would work on WP7. The layout seems much better than WinMo 6.5 and it shows that users won’t just be able to buy apps but also music and podcasts (not sure if that would be available in all markets). Check out the video below to see for yourself.

    How can they try to develop offerings that are different than Apple, Android and RIM?

    Too much…too late? I wonder if Windows 7 will integrate with the desktop seamlessly
