Controversy Erupts Over Possible MS Mobile App Fee

PCWorld writes:

"Microsoft may charge developers if they submit within a year more than five applications or application updates to the Windows Mobile Marketplace, a move that has some developers concerned that the store won't be able to compete with the iPhone App Store or the Android Market.

Microsoft first publicly unveiled the Marketplace concept in February and has only slowly released details about how the store will work. While the company has already said that developers will be allowed to submit five applications for an annual US$99 fee, this is the first hint that application updates will count as additional applications."

The story is too old to be commented.
