Some very interesting insights on the Windows Phone marketplace here. It’s a no brainer that the more apps you have, the more your ecosystem would prosper. Microsoft might just be on it’s way to give a tougher fight to the exploding Android phone market. Why do I call it that and not the smartphone market? Well, the smartphone market is pretty huge. Surely Apple leads the way here but then the Android phone segment makes up it’s own little world. A world filled with people..err phones of all sizes and shapes and variable capabilities. I’m guessing this is where Microsoft wants to strike first rather than poking at Apple fanboys directly.
Of course, something is better than nothing.
