If you’re are still using WindowsMobile 6.1 (or even 6.0) you’ll be happy to know that WindowsMobile Marketplace is now available for download and use.
Head over to http://mp.windowsphone.com on your device to get the cab file.
You need a Windows Live ID to use the store.
Gotchas: Apps from the store are installed to main memory.
While it’s nice that 6.0 and 6.1 users will be able to get and use the store. It really makes no sense to me why it seems to be restricted to the US. I cannot add a credit card meaning I cannot buy any apps.
I hope Microsoft fixes this in the near future. Hey you are supposed to be a global company! Open up the marketplace!
While this is a step in the right direction this definitely needs more work.
