Microsoft Supports Higher App Prices for Windows Phone 7

Thursday May 26th 2011 by Staff

Don't expect many Windows Phone apps to cost 99 cents.

Bloomberg BusinessWeek: Microsoft's Brandon Watson says that the company supports third-party developers who want to charge more for their mobile apps. “I’d rather developers sell fewer than a million downloads and get to a million dollars,” he said. “If we can support a higher price point that’s good for developers.”

While the Android and Apple app stores offer many apps for free or for 99 cents, Windows Phone 7 will encourage higher price points in order to attract higher quality apps.
