3 3Microsoft Confidential The biggest chunk of eye candy weve seen has been the unveiling of the significantly retooled Windows Phone Marketplace – and needless to say, its a looker! Chris Ziegler / Engadget It's going to look like the rest of Windows Phone 7, which is to say, it's going to be swipey and zoomy and all those things that made Windows Phone 7 interesting looking. John Herrman on the WP7 legacy The Windows Phone Marketplace ties right in with the Metro interface and finally -- at least in appearance -- seems to be worthy of the operating system on which it resides. Phil Nickinson on WP7 Marketplace I was quite pleased with the detailed descriptions, features, requirements, and size of the apps. It was also great to see reviews and screenshots of the applications so you had a good way to evaluate whether or not you want to make a purchase. Matthew Miller on the 6x experience Though late to the party, Microsoft's new Windows Marketplace for Mobile is welcome, with the usual collection of free and for-pay apps found on rival smartphones. The store has a slick interface similar to Microsoft's Zune portable media players. Ed Baig on Marketplace unveil The look of the marketplace itself is a stark difference from Windows Mobile markets before: its clean and seamless, searching and scrolling through screens makes finding applications easier and even the aesthetics and UI are beautiful. Marc Flores on ease of use Microsoft has a killer collection of developers ready for launch as well, ranging from games, to media and productivity app devs. Notable developers include The Associated Press, Citrix, EA Mobile, Foursquare, Namco, Pandora, and Popcap Games. Devindra Hardawar on WP7 Marketplace ISVs The Marketplace was also demonstrated, and it looks gorgeous, but this is very similar to Apple and Googles app stores except for one killer feature: Microsoft is going to require developers to allow buyers to demo all apps before they are purchased. John Brownlee on winning features Theres also some nice integration with new services such at the Marketplace for Mobile applications and MyPhone synchronization. Michael Gartenberg on early Marketplace adoption
