Microsoft Silently Launches the Zune Marketplace in India
Although it is been very late, it is finally here. Microsoft has launched their Zune Marketplace in India. This will open up another big market for developers working with Windows Phone 7.
The Marketplace is now live in the country and users can now make payments in Indian rupees. However, Microsoft is yet to make an official announcement about this update. This has been a very silent update from the guys so it might be possible that they are currently testing it, before announcing it with the necessary changes. However, Zune pass is yet not available in the country and users can only access the application store and make payments in local currency.
Also, it is needless to say that Microsoft has to get the Zune Marketplace up and running in India before Nokia start shipping its devices. Although currently there are just a few Windows Phone 7 devices available in the market, but we expect that it would be a very different scenario next year at about the same time.
