Phone 7 Marketplace For Developers
Microsoft Phone 7 Marketplace will have a transparent app screening process, which clearly defines what developers have to do in order to publish their application, unlike App Store where rules aren’t clearly defined due to which many applications are rejected. Apart from this a developer can release his first 5 applications for free in the Marketplace before he is charged $99/year for developer license, the developer can update version of their application as many times as they want.
Developers will get 70% share of revenue for each application they sell.
The development tools like SDK for Windows Phone 7 are available for free download at developer.windowsphone.com
