Windows Phone Marketplace expands to 41 markets
The Windows Phone Marketplace has gone live in five new countries on Friday, the company announced. This includes Argentina, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, and the Philippines. Users in those regions will need to have their devices updated to Windows Phone 7.5 before they can access the store, however.
All the apps coming online in the respective new stores may take a few hours to get activated, Microsoft also suggests. The Windows Phone Marketplace is now live 41 markets. Developers who want their apps to be available in all of the countries the store is available in will have to make them globally available again, or go back and select the individual countries they want to publish them in.
