This announcement was made around the same time when Microsoft decided to release its Windows Phone 7.5 Tango. This gadgets’ hardware provides a complete life guarantee as Nokia, HTC, and ZTE design them out of trusted hardware. It seems to be compatible with OS too.
App Hub has increased the curfew time for app submissions
By Next week, App Hub is also expected to accept new submissions for this newly released Windows Marketplace by Microsoft OS developers. Even you can try doing this, you just need to visit the official website and decide which apps to publish.
