Microsoft offers help

The Redmonds made an unexpected offer to the developers: to transfer their applications to the newly opened new Windows Phone Marketplace markets by Microsoft itself.

A few days ago, many developers for Windows Phone received a letter from Microsoft. In it, the corporation was interested in whether developers needed help in transferring applications to new markets.

If agreed, the corporation was obliged to transfer the entire package of applications of specific developers to 22 new markets. Microsoft also promised to transfer application prices from dollars to the local currency on its own. 

It is not entirely clear why Microsoft decided to provide such assistance to developers. Perhaps she was afraid that many people would decide it was unnecessary to enter the markets of Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Croatia, Estonia, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, Venezuela, as well as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kazakhstan, Israel, Thailand and Vietnam. 

Microsoft itself assures in the letter that it just wants to save time and effort of developers by taking on some of their responsibilities.

Those who have received the letter and are interested should send a reply by April 27.
