Submission + - Microsoft Mobile App Store expected with WM7 (

ruphus13 writes: With the upcoming release of Windows Mobile 7, the speculation that Microsoft will also be launching an App Store has been growing. Microsoft has also made some bold steps in that direction. From the article, "Microsoft has reposted a July 30, 2008 job posting for a Product Manager under Marketing for Windows Mobile. More specifically, the new job posting details a Windows Mobile marketplace "for developers wishing to distribute and monetize their Windows Mobile applications" that will have an initial launch "to the developer community this fall" and a commercial one together "with the launch of WM 7."..."The really juicy part is that the updated second job posting also notes "integration of the marketplace offering into broader Microsoft services, offerings or discussions." Furthermore, a third job posting for a Product Unit Manager says that the following responsibility is critical: "You will also work closely with the SkyLine, SkyMarket and SkyBox teams, as well as with the Office Live team to ensure that we are leveraging all the resources across Microsoft.""
