Microsoft has announced that it has integrated a number of enhancements for its Marketplace for Mobile site, which is available for use now for version 6.5 users.
According to the Windows Marketplace developers, the enhancements have included, "...adding more advanced anti-piracy protection and an improved developer portal for our registered ISVs (Independent Software Vendor), as well as introducing PC based shopping and account management for Windows phone customers."
That means from now onwards, owners of Windows Mobile 6.5 phones will be able to buy applications not only via their phones but also from their desktop PCs, by visiting the Windows Marketplace for Mobile website.
The security additions are, according to the developers, "...transparent for customers, developers will now be able to take advantage of these new protections by following the steps outlined in this anti-piracy whitepaper."
Expect to see further upgrades that will allow users of phones running Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.0 later this month.
