Windows Phone 8 application submissions up 40%, staffed for the holidays
Microsoft says that Windows Phone has been experiencing a sustained 40% increase in application submissions and that it will maintain full staffing through the rest of the year to meet demand. In addition, Microsoft has committed to a 5 business day turn-around for applications to get certified.
That means if you are a developer and hope to have your app certified and available by Christmas, you will want to submit your app no later than December 17th. Apps you want available by New Year’s Day, submit no later than December 21st.
That is good news for developers and users alike. We know the developers have some great applications to design, and we are pretty certain there is a new and growing base of customers to download and use those apps.

WP will eventually take a good position in the market share. That's sure by observing their progress and support.

iFolks The Windows 8 OS is based upon the "NT OS" kernel. many developers used to write programs for the Old Windows NT OS that was on Desktop and Laptops computers.
This OS is stable a network OS which is more powerful than XP. Developers can do more
things working with Windows 8 than the OS that is on Windows 7 series smart phones.
Developers will write more and better apps for windows 8 than they ever dared to with windows 7 series smart phones but dig this Windows 7.8 smart phones will be on the market as the OS for cheap Windows smart phones. Developers can write Apps for them giving the Windows 7 series smart phones that cannot be upgraded to Windows 8 more new apps but they will not be able to run A Windows phone 8 app because it's for a different OS
