Windows Mobile gets security, PC shopping update

Microsoft on Wednesday said it has released new updates to Windows Marketplace for Mobile, just over a month after its launch. Among them is stronger anti-piracy protection and improvements in the developer portal. To the average Windows Mobile user, however, the more important news is the newfound ability to browse for and buy apps from the web on a computer and then transfer the purchases to their handsets wirelessly.

Listening to developers, Microsoft has made uploading images easier for them and made available more information pertaining to account status. Microsoft also said it will bring the Marketplace for Mobile service to users of Windows Mobile 6.0- and 6.1-based handsets later in November.
