Today, Microsoft has announced that they have activated a China and India on the Windows Phone marketplace.
- Developers in China can now submit Windows Phone Apps – though they can not purchase them yet.
- Windows Phone user in India can now purchase apps and games from the Windows Phone marketplace
Expansion in China & India
To start, weâ€™re pleased to announce that as of today developers in China can now register via App Hub and begin submitting apps for availability in any of our supported Marketplace countries (sorry, not including China at this time). This opens up the Windows Phone opportunity to the tens-of-thousands of talented and creative developers in China. Weâ€™ll continue working to bring Marketplace and App Hub to even more markets. In the meantime, we offer the Global Publisher Program in major markets around the world, giving developers in those countries access to Marketplace via local intermediaries.
Similarly, weâ€™re pleased to announce that as of today Windows Phone customers in India are now able to purchase your apps and games via Windows Phone Marketplace!
