Microsoft is trying to get us back to being enthusiastic about the Windows Mobile platform. First there is the news from MWC about Windows Phone 7, and now there is an update to the Windows Mobile Marketplace.
Users running Windows Mobile 6.x can upgrade to the newest version of the Marketplace. The updates include in-depth links to application product pages, user-selectable regional stores, Russian support, and some other changes. Its a solid upgrade for anyone using a Windows Mobile device.
The most notable piece of the upgrade is the ability to install and run applications from the storage card. Yes, finally someone is allowing this to happen, without having to root a device or change to a different ROM (yes, I am looking at you Android). This is a huge boon to Windows Mobile users. Hopefully other companies adopt this piece of the upgrade.
