The Windows Phone Marketplace team is getting ready for launch. In anticipation of that exciting event they have revamped the developer portal in order to make it easier to distribute and manage games and apps. These changes coincide with a new set of policies and timelines for rolling out Marketplace for developers. Initially, two thousand developers will be chosen from the initial registered developers. Chosen developers will receive guidance and early access to the application submission and certification process. Windows Phone Marketplace will become fully available to developers in November. Most importantly for developers is that the first payday will come in February. All of this is really exciting and suggests that the app selection will be robust at launch.
