Microsoft to kill Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace on May 9

If there were any people left using Windows Mobile 6.x at all, they should know that Microsoft will shut down the Marketplace for its former OS on May 9. You won't be able to download or update apps after that.

Everything you installed from there will continue to work, but if you happen to reset your phone, youíll lose your apps. Your only option then will be to side-load them afterwards.

We really canít imagine anyone left using the platform and specifically its deserted application store anyway, so closing it should be the right decision.

Killing the application store of an OS means the end of the OS itself, so R.I.P. Windows Mobile.

Ohhh, please.... Used to have an EtenX500 running Win6.5 - one of my worst phones ever. An incoming call would make the GPS navigation reengage for 2 minutes...

Can anyone tell me if Nokia Asha 303 is included on this? I am not sure if Asha 303 is a Windows Mobile also. And what would happen if it's included? Does my Cell will shut down? how can I avoid it? and what should I do? Please help.
