Todd Brix has announced on the Windows Phone Developer Blog that Windows Phone 8 will support 180 countries at launch. The platform currently covers 63 markets, making this a fairly sizeable improvement. Developers will also be able to make full use of this added support, which will be a bonus for consumers in those markets.
So which countries are being added? Check out the chart after the break for all the juicy details...
Note that the market list can change before Windows Phone 8 launches. Brix also quickly covered new versions of the Marketplace and App Hub, which are both still in development and have been rebuilt from the ground up.
