Microsoft opens Marketplace developer forums

The buzz is starting to grow among developers as we continue to wait for the official launch of Windows Marketplace for Mobile, and with it the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5.

The Microsoft Developers Network has opened developers forums (opens in new tab), and the chatter is growing. Threads so far include "Do you have to use Microsoft's Development Tools?", "Wishlist for Windows Mobile Marketplace", "When can we expect a WM 6.5 SDK?", and a slew of others.

Most end users probably won't get too much out of it, but it's an interesting look at what goes on behind the scenes.

  • When 6.5 does launch - unfourtunatley it will mean nout to me since i havent even got 6.5 :( i'll have to wait like a year before i get a free upgrade
  • this is almost pointless. with no 6.5 phones out and it being locked to 6.5, who really cares?
  • Dont see why they dont upgrade all 6.1 devices that have the hardware capabilities
  • When 6.5 is released it will be a complete fail because no 1 will have it unless they upgrade all 6.1 devices!
