Wow Windows has a Market Place??? Hahaha just joking. I'd say who cares and a definite move to alienate people who still a WP phone. If this does not move more people to Android then i don't know what will. I mean last census puts WPs at around 3%-5% max of the OS actually being used in the world thesedays and that is falling. So no biggie here. Time to put Windows mobile to rest people.

Too bad I don't have the money to update. Even I'm still using windows mobile 6.5 on my omnia 2 and when I open the marketplace it always says error(I think they already shut down the marketplace for old devices)anyway the marketplace of windows mobile 6.5 was full of crap,most of the apps there are paid and if you download one that's free it will always crash and the next time you turn on the lockscreen on your phone...it's already turned off even if you did not press anything
