Today Microsoft announced details on how its Windows Marketplace for Mobile will work. The Windows Marketplace for Mobile will be available in 29 countries at launch, and Microsoft will certify each application to be sure they work properly. Application developers will get 70% of all revenue generated by the sales of their applications, and developers will be able to set the sales price of their apps in each market it is available. Developers can submit up to five applications per year for $99. If they wish to submit more applications, they will need to pay $99 for each additional app. Developers will receive feedback from Microsoft during the certification process. Developers will be able to use standard tools for creating applications, including the Windows Mobile 6 SDK and .NET Compact Framework 3.5. Microsoft will share more details with developers when the market opens later this spring. Microsoft expects to begin accepting applications for approval starting this summer.
