File under: Possibly interesting for a slow news day, we suppose

Starting the first week of October, Microsoft will start accepting applications into the Windows Phone Marketplace for review, presumably for that late October release.

We've seen what the store looks like already and we know about those Xbox LIVE games, but for those who really want the details, the full list of app categories has been finalized.

In a lot of ways, this is just obvious stuff but for those of us who are itching to try the new system and see how it all works, we'll take all we can get.

See the full list after the jump. There are 41 categories/subcategories total, making it pretty exhaustive. The best part is we can easily expect a few hundred apps on launch to fill the store, making this list quite more than wishful thinking (unlike the current Windows Mobile Marketplace, ahem).
