Windows Phone Marketplace now has 12,000 registered developers

Some more good news, we suppose, coming from Microsoft suggests that many developers have taken an interest in the Windows Phone Marketplace, launched just last month. Evidently, Microsoft has seen registration increase by 40% over the last few weeks, bringing the total amount of registered developers to a sizable 12,000.

While we don't necessarily expect 12,000 apps right away, we assume some of those developers will make multiple programs, meaning we won't have any shortage anytime soon. But enough tip calculators, m'kay?
