After Windows Phone 8 launch, Microsoft says app downloads and developer revenue have doubled
posted by Alan F. / Dec 02, 2012, 9:58 PM
strong demand for apps on the Windows Phone 8 platform.You might recall that lack of a strong applications marketplace was one of the reasons why the Palm Pre didn't take off following an exciting introduction at CES 2009.
If more developers are inspired to write for Windows Phone 8 by the possibility of financial gain, it could help the Windows Phone Marketplace close the gap between it and the Apple App Store and Android flavored Google Play Store.

I think it's more mature in terms of optimization and performance wise.

this would be a great time to make a phone thats similar to the orinal Xperia (controller button slide out) to take advantage of the microsoft live support and give microsoft a way transfer into the handheld video game system market.. Never understood why sony didn't let you download and play PSP games on that phone.

Repay Nokia? Nokia should repay MS for helping them keep afloat.

lets not forget the advantage MS is taking from Nokia, Nokia maps, some of Nokia's patents, Nokia's hard work to set themselves apart from competition, and to push WP more mainstream, they should get more love from Microsoft
