Windows Phone Marketplace coming to six new markets around the globe

Windows Phone Marketplace coming to six new markets around the globe
Six new markets around the globe will soon have access to the Windows Phone Marketplace as developers can begin to publish their apps while they wait for it to go live. The six new markets are Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines. The addition of these six markets raises the total to 41. For those who try to publish applications in one of these newly added areas there are some new rules to follow

These new rules are in place to govern the content that can be accessed via the Marketplace in those markets. Apps will not be able to make alcoholic or religious references, refrain from sexual or bathroom humor as well as showing people in revealing clothing or sexually suggestive poses and avoid simulated or actual gambling. The new rules will surely keep plenty of existing apps from being accessible in these areas.

There is no word on when the Windows Phone Marketplace will go live in those markets so keep checking back for any further updates.
