Windows Phone 7 App Store [pcworld.com]
The "app store," or "Windows Phone Marketplace," was technically introduced eight months ago as a place where users could download software and updates for Windows Mobile 6. With the advent of Windows Phone 7, however, there will be a new set of policies governing the Marketplace, according to a blog post by Brandon Watson.

Notably, developers will have to shell out $99 per year (the same as for Apple's App Store) in order to submit applications. For the $99 fee, developers will be able to submit five free applications (additional free applications will cost $19.99 each--hopefully this will cut down on the spammy/stupid apps) and unlimited paid apps. The paid apps feature a 70/30 revenue split, which is the same deal Apple gives its developers.

Windows Phone Marketplace also offers a slew of options not available to Apple developers--most notably, a "Trial API" option, in which users can try out apps before purchasing them. The length of the trial period and type of trial is controlled by the developer.

That should come in handy when they do release this OS. ;)

I hope they do get some traction with this as the Apple and Android marketplaces are eating their lunch now.
