Pre-order: Surface Laptop | NEW Surface Pro

The Windows Phone Marketplace, which has been expanding at a relatively mediocre pace, now covers five more territories. Argentina, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines now join the 36 other countries that have access to games and apps for their handsets. Todd Brix recently published an article on the official team blog detailing plans for an upcoming expansion, urging developers of those countries to start submitting apps and games.

China is not open to Windows Phone owners just yet, but developers are able to submit content. If you're a developer with global reach, be sure to read up on Brix's latest post walking through this expansion.

Over at the Windows Phone Developer Blog Todd Brix just announced that with the new year comes new markets for Windows Phone. Since the initial release of Windows Phone the geographic availability of the Marketplace has been spreading, and with this there are 6 new markets: Argentina, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru and the Philippines.

In the post he mentions that this does not mean that those markets are available to WP7 users there just yet, but rather that developers can now publish their application there in anticipation.

There are also a few extra rules which govern what content will pass certification. So if you have an application that may possibly have questionable content I would suggest publishing it first to the rest of the world, and then these new markets, to make sure you don't get stuck in certification hell.

With the these new rules in-place I imagine that quite a few developers will not be able to get their applications to these areas:

Examples of potentially offensive content in certain countries/regions include, but are not limited to the following:
• People in revealing clothing or in sexually suggestive poses
• Religious references
• Alcohol references
• Sexual or bathroom humor
• Simulated or actual gambling

However that's not totally a bad thing, because from the look of it these markets will never have to deal with any fart-apps!
