Microsoft has announced that its Windows Phone 7 platform now has a total of 15,000 application developers, and Microsoft are hoping to reach 3,000 published applications by the end of the week.
Microsoft has a bit of work to do to catch other mobile platforms like Google’s Android platform and Apple’s iOS platform, but it is least a step in the right direction, and those 15,000 developers are bound to help Microsoft get their platform established.
When compared to Apple’s iOS platform and Google’s Android platform, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 is a fairly new mobile OS which has only been out for a couple of weeks.
We recently reviewed our first Windows Phone 7 smartphone, and I was pleasantly surprised by Windows Phone 7, personally I don’t think it can take on Apple and Google just yet, but with some development it might just be able to become popular with smartphone users.
It will be interesting to see how Microsoft develops Windows Phone 7, they certainly are putting a lot of resources into their new mobile OS, and it is much better than their previous mobile OS.
