微软将为 Windows Mobile 推出 Skymarket

微软将为 Windows Mobile 推出 Skymarket尽管微软的 Windows Mobile 有大约 18,000 款应用,而 iPhone 只有 2,000 多,但 Apple 利用 AppStore 为用户提供了一个相对完整的安装应用体验。但 Long Zheng 发现其实微软已经开始准备推出一款集中的应用 Marketplace(类似 AppStore),代号为 SkyMarket,这些信息是出现在 Windows Mobile 7 相关招聘信息中的,我只列出其中一条:

Job Title: Senior Product Manager – Skymarket
