SOFTWARE REDEVELOPER Microsoft has told Windows Mobile customers that
it will be shutting down its Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace.
As Microsoft winds down Windows Mobile support, those struggling on
the much maligned smartphone operating system are being forced to move
over to superior alternatives. Now Microsoft has told Windows Mobile
6.x users that from 9 May 2012 the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace will
be shut down, cutting off a significant avenue for adding software to
devices running Windows Mobile 6.x.
Microsoft told users, "Starting on this date [9 May 2012], you will no
longer be able to browse, buy or download applications directly on
your Windows Mobile 6.x phone using the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace
application and service."
Yet Windows 6.x phones are still on sale and last time I checked were
still outselling WP7. Definitely a reason for existing 6.x owners to
move to Android.
A man is accepted into church for what he believes--and turned out
for what he knows.
